Kanye West Performs 'New Slaves', Debuts 'Black Skinhead' on 'SNL'


As the show's musical guest, Yeezy brought new music from his upcoming album to the episode hosted by Ben Affleck.

A couple of days after projecting his new single's visuals across 66 different locations around the world, G.O.O.D Music mogul Kanye West performed "New Slaves" when he appeared as musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend. The 35-year-old father-to-be brought his "baby" a.k.a his new music on the hit variety/comedy show, giving fans not just one, but two new songs from his much-anticipated forthcoming sixth album "Yeezus", by debuting the track "Black Skinhead" as well.

Like in his past gigs, West gave another intense performance on the May 18 season finale hosted by Oscar-winning director and actor Ben Affleck. His live rendition of the two racially-charged tracks gave fans a glimpse into his angry and confrontational new album due to be released next month on June 18, where the controversial rapper, known for being outspoken, touches on several thought-provoking issues.

Very much pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian is fully supportive of West, posting the supposed cover art of his LP on her Instagram account Saturday night along with a photo of the rap superstar's Air Yeezy sneakers he designed for Nike. "#Yeezus #RedYeezy's #SNL #Tonight #NewSlaves #YeezySeason #Donda #June18," Kardashian wrote.

Alluding to their very public interracial relationship, "Black Skinhead" finds West rapping about a black guy dating a white girl. Meanwhile, "New Slaves" speaks about the pervading materialism that shackles people to objects and possessions.
