Kanye West Debuts “Black Skinhead” & “New Slaves” on Saturday Night Live

Kanye West on SNL

Late last night Kanye West made hype history performing two new tracks called “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves” off his forthcoming record Yeezus dropping June 18th, on the Saturday Night Live season finale hosted by Ben Affleck following his worldwide premiere of “New Slaves” which was projected on city streets all over the world.

He played his powerful track “Black Skinhead” with projected imagery of angry dogs and a bunch of slogans while screaming and pounding out the vocals, with Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People” sampled in the background. For “New Slaves” he only performed the first portion of the track, not the second which featured Frank Ocean.

Check out both perfromaces below along with the lyrics to “Black Skinhead.”
