Controvery never flies too far from rapper Kanye West.

The debate as to whether West is one of the biggest music stars in hip hop culture has a whole new layer to it now that a nude photo of the rapper has hit the Web.

MediaTakeOut.com posted an image yesterday, after weeks of rumors that claimed naked shots of West were making the rounds.

In the picture, which the site claims they received Friday morning, West is shown sitting on what appears to be a couch or chair, shirtless and wearing sunglasses and a chain necklace.

The bottom half of the uncensored photo, posted as a separate image, reveals West wearing black boxer-briefs with his assets exposed.

Kanye West is yet to confirmed whether or not the photo is indeed him. However, there is a line in his Runaway film that touch on the subject of him sending girls pictures of his d*ck.

Last week Urban Islandz told you that Kanye West album artwork allegedly banned from Walmart. Ye confirmed the allegations on his twitter account. Walmart have since denied the allegations.

MediaTakeOut has since remove the naked picture from the site.
