The video for Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" that recently made its way online is actually a leaked, unfinished version, the MC said in a handful of tweets today. As MTV points out, the stark, animated video for the first official single from Yeezus surfaced yesterday with links leading back to a "development" page on the Universal Music Group website. The page has since been password protected.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
