AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted: Kanye - "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD" (Black Skinhead)

While a rough, largely unfinished version was leaked a week or 2 ago and then re-upped in a more interactive/customizable form over the weekend, "BLKKK SKKKNHEAD" (Black Skinhead) was finally [officially] uploaded to YouTube mid-Tuesday afternoon. Painstakingly developed by Kanye and director Nick Knight over the past 5+ months, "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD" is really more so an anti-hit, even though it's been used in Martin Scorses's new trailer, The Wolf of Wall Street; The same squeaky clean edit has been released to urban radio stations nation-wide, which is slowly starting to pick up steam as a chart-topping "single." I think the only way I can possibly even begin to describe "Black Skinhead"'s special effects are those janky late 90's Tony Hawk, Grand Theft Auto, WWF, etc. video game build-a-player featurettes.

Tech-savvy Hip-Hop fans can head on over to Mr. West's personal website, where you're actually able to slow down, speed up, screenshot, and Instagram Nick Knight's CGI-filled video feed. 2dopeboyz commenter Gifts noted that "Kanye's sounds/visuals right now [are] basically Death Grips with a "Pop" influence;" to which Athens replied, "His producer even acknowledged the Death Grips comparison in an interview a few weeks ago... Even in this video, his CGI character seems more like Death Grips' MC Ride." WARNING: "BLKKK SKKKN HEAD" features plenty of cloaked KKK members, barking ghost-dogs, terrible attempts at rhythmic dancing, computer-generated dick, mildly racist undertones, and generally offensive notions (evenly spread) throughout! Kanye's widely loved/hated Industrial-Rap mess of a new album, Yeezus is now available for your mass consumption and neck-snapping enjoyment.
