Kanye West has reportedly banned photographs of him wearing a leather kilt at a Hurricane Sandy benefit gig last year.

According to The Sun, the rapper has asked that picture agency Getty Images to delete every image they have of him wearing the black leather number onstage at the 12-12-12 benefit gig. The rapper appears to just have problem with that particular fashion faux pas as all other images of him are still available through the agency.

In other Kanye West news, artists in his GOOD Music collective are still denying that his planned follow-up to the 'Cruel Summer' compilation album have been scrapped. Pusha T has echoed comments by Common that 'Cruel Winter', as it was rumoured to be called, is not going ahead.

"I believe that there were intentions for a 'Cruel Winter' and there's so much music floating, but GOOD Music isn't one to just piece a project together," Pusha T said before adding that things were definitely recorded for the mooted album, saying: "I can tell you right now, I probably have 15 verses that are just over beats, that are lying around wherever 'Ye and his hard drive is right now, and I'm sure Cyhi, Sean, Cudi, Tip, everybody has other production or verses on these records as well'."

Rapper Q-Tip had previously stated that 'Cruel Winter' was definitely happening.
