Kanye West is officially back. The rapper, who has been on sort of a self-imposed hiatus, is ready to drop a brand new solo album and to launch it, he performed new material on Saturday Night Live’s season finale.
First up, Kanye debuted his new song “Black Skinhead.” Yeezy angrily bounced around the SNL stage and literally screamed the song’s lyrics on parts. In stark contrast, a calmer Ye returned for his second performance of the night with his new single “New Slaves.” This performance was all about the lyrics as the rapper stood still and just let the lyrics (including dropping the N word) speak for themselves.
Both “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves” will appear on Kanye West’s highly anticipated new album “Yeezus.” The set is expected to be released on June 18. Watch Kanye perform as musical guest on the season finale of SNL below.
