Kanye West has revealed the finished version of his new and interactive video for 'Yeezus' album track 'Black Skinhead'.

An unfinished version of the video for 'Black Skinhead', the first single taken from his latest album 'Yeezus', was posted online earlier this month, leading West to rant on Twitter about how angry he felt about the move and saying it was "heartbreaking". However, the finished version of the Nick Knight directed video is now online and viewable at Kanye West's website. The video employs striking monochrome imagery of barking dogs, shirtless men and a zombified, dancing West with viewers able to control the speed of the images and music, capturing specific images from the video and sharing them online.

The release of the 'Black Skinhead' video follows a weekend which saw West involved in an incident with a photographer outside an airport in Los Angeles. Video footage shows West initially trying to ignore questions from a photographer, before appearing to lose his patience and beginning an agitated conversation with the snapper.

The rapper then tried to seize the photographer's camera in a scuffle which sees the paparazzo fall to the ground. After being urged to stop by an onlooker, West held his hands up and walks away.

Meanwhile, Pusha T, again reiterated that there will be no follow up to the GOOD Music album 'Cruel Summer' earlier this month. 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.
