Kanye West is "heartbroken" that an 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.

He has begged fans not to view it as it isn't 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.

He used expletives to describe his thoughts on whoever the leak culprit was.

While the rapper is furious that the unedited footage is online, he previously revealed he didn't 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***s at all."
