After an unfinished edit leaked last week and caused another meltdown (which was number 7,382 for those keeping count at home), the current overlord of industrial music and extremely overpriced t-shirts Kanye West has released his video for Black Skinhead.

It’s pretty much what you expect even if you missed the leaked version. Lots of dark imagery, angry rapping, and pretty high production value. The reason it looks like it needed more time in the oven is that it’s interactive: you can slow it down, speed it up, take snapshots etc.

For those who hoped they would splice in footage of him going ham on a photographer would be disappointed, but for everyone else you’re going to get a pretty cool video treatment for a rocking song.
