Kanye West has lashed out at the person who leaked an unfinished clip for his new music video BLKKK SKKKN HD.

An unfinished clip for Kanye’s new single Black Skinhead shot with fashion photographer Nick Knight was released online Monday without the pair’s permission.

Kanye took to Twitter Tuesday to vent his frustrations over the issue.

"The BLKKK SKKKN HD video that leaked yesterday was not the official version," he wrote, adding, “Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it's heartbreaking when something like this happens.”

Kanye revealed the full version is scheduled for release within the next week.

He also asked that any website playing the unfinished cut remove it as soon as possible.

"Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over,” he continued, adding, "And to who ever leaked the video… F**K YOU!"

As MTV News reports, the video that was leaked this week was ready for viewing on a “development” page for Universal Music Group.

The page is now password protected.

Kanye has had videos leaked in the past.

His video for hit single Monster was released in 2010 before it had been properly synched and finished.

Black Skinhead is a track from Kanye’s sixth studio album, entitled Yeezus.
