'Heartbroken' Kanye slams person who leaked music video

Kanye West is "heartbroken" that his unfinished music video leaked online.

The 'New Slaves' hitmaker, who recently welcomed his first child, North West, with his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, is furious that a rough cut of the video for his new song 'Black Skinhead' was shared online without his permission on Monday, and has begged his fans not to view it as it is not fully edited.

The 36-year-old rapper wrote on Twitter on Tuesday: "The BLKKK SKKKN HD video that leaked yesterday was not the official version.

"Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it's heart-breaking when something like this happens.

"The final version will be ready within the next week.

"So any website that may have the unapproved / unfinished ruff. I ask you to please take it down.

"Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over.

"And to who ever leaked the video… F** YOU!"

While the rapper is furious that the unedited footage is online, he previously revealed he did not care that his new album 'Yeezus' leaked before its official release.

He said: "I have this new strategy. It's called no strategy. This album is all about giving. This whole process is all about giving no f**ks at all."
