How mad is he?
Kanye is so mad that he actually did not complain via his usual tyrannical Twitter rant method. He actually maintained his composure and addressed the matter in a surprisingly, albeit, professional manner.
The BLKKK SKKKN HD video that leaked yesterday was not the official version.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) July 9, 2013
In the unauthorized, black and white clip, a shirtless, animated image of the rapper jumps around while performing the song.
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 WEST (@kanyewest) July 9, 2013
The final version will be ready within the next week.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) July 9, 2013
The new father, who welcomed last month his daughter North West with girlfriend Kim Kardashian, said the final version will be ready next week.
Kanye was arguably most humble in the way he requested that sites stop promoting the unfinished version.
So any website that may have the unapproved / unfinished ruff. I ask you to please take it down.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) July 9, 2013
Kanye explained the dedication he and Knight have placed in the work.
Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over.— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) July 9, 2013
Who is behind his fitting correspondence? Did someone on Kanye’s PR team write this on his behalf? Has new found fatherhood (also know to prompt sleep deprivation) calmed him? Or is it simply despair from artistic heartache?
Whatever the cause, thumbs up.
But Kanye gets in one last line of his otherwise super nice cease and desist order: “And to who ever leaked the video… F-K YOU!” he wrote.
That’s the Kanye we all know. But he gets a pass this time. He did ask nicely!
