On the same day that Kanye announced his upcoming album would be called ‘Yeezus,’ he looked on top of the universe (at least his own) while performing two brand new tracks on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ The rapper even dropped a few lines about his girl and baby-momma-to-be Kim!
Kanye West has conquered the music industry with five critically and popularly successful albums, now he’s apparently moving on to the experimental phase of his career. But that doesn’t mean he still can’t drop a few bars about Kim Kardashian from time to time!
Kanye West Performs New Songs On ‘SNL’
The 35-year-old rapper took the Saturday Night Live stage with attitude, busting out two aggressive new songs — “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves” — in front of a bright screen that was flashing stark vintage graphics. The projector created a strobe light effect, fiercely switching between ghoulish faces and graphics that said things like “Not For Sale.”
It was a brand new look — the Andy Warhol version of Kanye West.
Behind all the ambience though was the music. As his band churned out dark vibes music, Kanye spit racially charged verses, and even touched on his interracial relationship with Kim. “They see a black man with a white woman/At the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong,” Kanye rapped on “Black Skinhead.”
We love Yeezy’s charged energy on stage, but we hope he puts on a nicer face for his newborn baby!
Kanye West’s New Album Title: ‘Yeezus’
Kanye had a quite a weekend. Besides starring on SNL, the title of his album was also released. Kanye will continue to take on the form of a deity with the album title, Yeezus — yes, a clever combination of Yeezy and Jesus.
The title was first reported by the hip-hop site, Rap-Up, but Kim Kardashian herself confirmed it by posting a picture of the album cover on her Instagram.
#Yeezus #RedYeezy’s #SNL #Tonight #NewSlaves #YeezySeason #Donda #June18,” Kim tweeted along with the photo. What a supportive girlfriend!
