Kanye West is extremely unhappy the world caught a glimpse of his latest music video.

West's anticipated clip for "Black Skinhead" -- the first visual from his polarizing album "Yeezus" -- set the blogosphere afire late Monday when it mysteriously popped up online.

Though the clip didn't appear on West's official site, the clip quickly circulated after a link to a Universal Music Group "development" page started making the rounds.

In the black-and-white clip, a CGI-version of a very buff West morphs into a demon during the dark video.

There’s some of the same scary Dobermans and KKK references that left fans scratching their heads when he debuted the track on “Saturday Night Live” against a stark backdrop. And at one point there's even some shocking full frontal nudity courtesy of an anatomically incorrect (we assume) rendering of West.

But West took to Twitter on Tuesday to vent his frustrations over the leak, which he says isn't the "official version."

"Me and Nick Knight have been working on this video for 5 months and for creatives it's heartbreaking when something like this happens," he fired off in a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon. "Allow me and Nick to give the world what we've been losing sleep over."

West promised the final version will be ready "within the next week," before asking websites to take down the rough version of the clip.

As for whoever leaked the video? West had some characteristically unkind, and unprintable, words.

Oh, and while we can't embed the video -- thanks to West's penis -- it's very easy to find.
