Walmart just isn't feeling Kanye West's Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Well, according to the rapper. 

"Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!! Ima tweet in a few…," West wrote on his Twitter Sunday.

And just what does this possibly too-hot-for-big box retail Fantasy look like?

Prepare yourself....

Like this. And whatever you think about it, the rapper responsed in good, old-fashioned Kanye-style tweeting vengeance. 

"Banned in the USA!!! They don't want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!," West wrote. 

Quicker than anyone could ask for clarification about this peculiar phoenix character, the Power rapper posted the shot in question, which as you can see shows two reclining figures, plus or minus arms, wings and a tail.

"In the 70s album covers had actual nudity…It's so funny that people forget that…Everything has been so commercialized now," West went on to say. "I know that cover just blew yall minds…I wish yall could see how hard I'm smiling right now!!!" 

And there was even more to be said about this supposed ban.

"In all honesty…I really don't be thinking about Walmart when I make my music or album covers #kanyeshrug!", the loquacious Grammy winner ranted on. "I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity."

So, what do you think about West's album cover? Take the poll and let's settle this.
