Kanye West has tweeted an unauthorised Rolling Stone cover, featuring a shot by Tyler, The Creator.
The hip-hop star unveiled the 'cover' last night, and it's a great shot - Yeezy is smiling, while the vivid tones give the photograph a real sense of life.
Rolling Stone quickly confirmed that the cover was not official, while Kanye West began his #trollingstone campaign to get the magazine to release it as the real thing.
