Kanye West has hit out after the video for 'Black Skinhead', the first single taken from his latest album 'Yeezus', was posted online.

The rapper took to Twitter to vent his anger after the clip, which was directed by Nick Knight who previously worked on Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' video, was leaked before it was finalised. In a series of rants he wrote:



He urged any websites that have posted the clip to take it down immediately before adding:



The video for 'Black Skinhead' was posted online earlier today (July 9). It was released as a single on US Independence Day (July 4). The newly released clip employs striking monochrome imagery of barking dogs, shirtless men and a zombified, dancing West. The song has also been used in the trailer for director Martin Scorsese's forthcoming film The Wolf Of Wall Street.

Meanwhile, Pusha T, again reiterated that there will be no follow up to the GOOD Music album 'Cruel Summer' earlier today. It has long been rumoured that the hip-hop collective, which features West alongside Pusha T, Big Sean and 2 Chainz, would release a second album following their 2012 debut. However, speaking to radio station Power 98, Pusha T said that the individual members of the group are too busy with their own projects to work on anything together at the moment.
