‘SNL’: Kanye West Performs ‘New Slaves’ (VIDEO)


/ May 19, 2013

Projected on walls around the world only yesterday, Kanye West projects his new track, “New Slaves,” onto a television near you. Yeezus, as he would now like to be called, performed the song after first debuting “Black Skinhead” earlier in the sketch show’s season 38 finale.

“Fuck you and your Hampton house/I’ll fuck your Hampton spouse/ Came on her Hampton blouse/And in her Hampton mouth/Y’all ’bout to turn shit up/I’m ’bout to tear shit down/ I’m ’bout to air shit out/Now what the fuck they gon’ say now?” ‘Ye raps on “New Slaves.” He also clears up the issue of his hot-headed temperament on the track: “You see it’s leaders and it’s followers/But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower.” Totally understandable.

Kanye’s sixth studio LP, Yeezus, drops June 18.
