After his much-anticipated Yeezus album leaked online five days before its official release date, a CGI video for first single “Black Skinhead” seemed to suffer the same fate yesterday evening (July 7) before being yanked as suddenly as it appeared.
The video seemed to have been made public mistakenly while on a Universal Music Group staging site, which has become password-protected. But it did give bootleggers a chance to grab the NSFW clip, which you can watch here.
The black and white video, shot in grainy CGI, features West stomping around to the aggressive track, alternately shirtless in black leather pants and a single gold chain, or sporting a stylized suit of what appears to be armor, complete with a spiked head covering. At one point, his paints fall to the ground, revealing private parts that grow as the video goes on. Hence the NSFW warning.
