Kanye West unleashed his anger as his unfinished video for new single Black Skinhead was leaked online.
Kanye West, 36, posted six increasingly angry tweets insisting websites remove the rough draft of the video.
“Allow me and Nick [Knight] to give the world what we’ve been losing sleep over,” the singer tweeted.
Kanye West explained that he and video director Nick Knight had been working on the video for five months and “for creatives it’s heartbreaking when something like this happens”.
His last tweet on the subject was directed at the source of the illicit video and was not quite as polite.
“And to who ever leaked the video.. F*** You!”

The three-and-a-half minute clip showed Kanye West with CGI effects and dancing around to the track with his shirt off in computer-animated black-and-white imagery.
The video was shot by British photographer Nick Knight who recently photographed the controversial rapper in an artsy spread for W magazine.
Nick Knight in 2001 directed his first video for Björk for her song Pagan Poetry and in 2011 directed the video for Lady Gaga’s single Born This Way.
Kanye West released his sixth studio album Yeezus last month and Black Skinhead was released as the album’s first single last week.
The album has received positive reviews and marked Kanye West’s sixth consecutive number one debut.
Kim Kardashian took to Twitter yesterday to post an image of herself as none other than Diana Ross.
Kim Kardashian, 31, who has previously emulated Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe, bared little resemblance to the legendary singer.
But perhaps photographer Hype Williams, who also shot the music video for Kim Kardashian’s 2011 chart flop Jam (Turn It Up), has something different in mind from the raw images his model posted on Twitter today.
Still, taking to the micro-blogging website, Kim Kardashian seemed ecstatic with the results, writing: “Love this hair!!!”

The style certainly made a statement, Kim Kardashian’s curls teased several inches from either side of her face.
The make-up team accentuated her features with inches of product, bronzing her glossy complexion and topping it with rosy circles of rouge, slashes of pastel pink lipstick and heavy blue eyeshadow.
Her eyelashes appeared longer than their usual extreme length, spidering around her brown eyes, which were heavily lined in black.
Hoop earrings, studded thigh high boots and a black blazer completed the styling.
Elaborating on her Celebuzz blog, Kim Kardashian wrote: “[W]e went for a fun, crazy look, channeling Diana Ross. Definitely a new look for me.”
It was not known at press time where the final images would be featured.
The reality star meanwhile released the snaps in tandem with a shot by Nick Knight which showed the star looking much more like herself.
The black-and-white image, shot for V magazine, features the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star sweeping back her mane to reveal chiseled cheeks and her trademark pout.
Clearly proud of the shot she promoted on Twitter, she thanked the fashion photographer.
“LOVE U NICK KNIGHT!” Kim Kardashian wrote, telling fans she “can’t wait” for them to see the full editorial.
