Kanye West Set to Release "Black Skinhead" as First 'Yeezus' Single

FUSE TV - Kanye West Set to Release "Black Skinhead" as First 'Yeezus' Single

The release of Kanye West's Yeezus was just a wee bit sidelined by the birth of a certain baby girl, but 'Ye is back in action and ready to release the first single from the album: "Black Skinhead."

According to Billboard, the rapper and producer is currently prepping the track for a July 4th release. A cleaned up/expletive-free version will be sent to DJs and a music video for the song is also in the works.

Yeezus was hitting a critical mass from a viral marketing campaign just before the birth of little North West. This included mysterious projections of track "New Slaves" appearing at random on various buildings throughout the world.

The last projection, which appeared the night that Yeezy's babymama Kim Kardashian went into labor, was a bizarre "American Psycho" themed short featuring "Keeping Up With the Kardashian's" star Scott Disick.

But despite any overshadowing that a major Kanye West life event may have caused, Yeezus still managed to grab a Billboard No. 1 debut.

And just last week producer Rick Rubin alluded to a possible Yeezus sequel.

"Initially, he thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album," Rubin said. "But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, 'Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half," to which Kanye excitedly said, "That's what I came here today to hear! It could be 10 songs!"

So, it looks like the Yeezus train isn't slowing down anytime soon.

Check out Kanye's "Black Skinhead" debut on "SNL" below:
