Update: Kanye West Performs “Black Skinhead” & “New Slaves” at the ‘Saturday Night Live’ Season Finale

He did not disappoint. With Yeezy season being in full effect, Kanye West brought his new music in the shape of Yeezus cuts "Black Skinhead" -- which features a sample of Marilyn Manson’s "Beautiful People" -- and the globally projected "New Slaves" to the musical stage of the Saturday Night Live finale. For the former, he was clad in a black-studded leather jacket and the upcoming all-red Nike Air Yeezy 2′s, screaming his lyrics with a live band in support. He was accompanied by an impressive barrage of imagery which alternated between Doberman Pinschers and price tags, including the phrase “Not For Sale."

UPDATE: We received confirmation from his camp that Kanye did not sample Marylin Manson's "Beautiful People" on "Black Skinhead." The beat was made from scratch and that's him screaming and breathing on the track.

    Waiting for the endless amount of leather that will be produced as a result of this, as well as the overwhelming numbers of carbon copies. Other than that looking forward to the album

    Everyone who is saying this stuff is "weird and crappy" are wrong, Black Skinhead is a jam and a half. Just cuz you can't bump these tracks at a bat mitzvah doesn't mean they are weird

    Is it just me fearing a mass misconception of his whole album as an attack on whites, and being dumbed down to a "oh, Kanye hates white people" thing? It goes far deeper than that, and if anything, nothing about that.

  • Fat ugly black guy

    also would have been able to differentiate between Doberman Pinschers and Rottweilers. But hey, its HT


    This is why Kanye > any other rapper (since ~2003)

    Kanye... if you are going to reference 'The 300' in one of your tracks can you please at least read an historical text or two before doing so. We are Greek.... not Roman. Pretty basic. I had been led to believe that you paid attention to detail.

  • http://twitter.com/lucidpoop lucidpoop

    That don't' fuck wit me vibe.

  • Khal

    He's sarcastically rapping 'bout how the media lies & pushes false knowledge on to us, hence the 300/Romans line. (They portrayed the Greeks as Romans in 300)
