Kanye West Performs "Black Skinhead" and "New Slaves" on Saturday Night Live

The night is finally here. Kanye West is tonight's musical guest on the season finale of Saturday Night Live hosted by Ben Affleck. We learned earlier today that his forthcoming project will be titled "Yeezus" and will drop on June 18, which is a month from today.

Tonight, Kanye took the stage to perform "Black Skinhead" tonight on SNL. He finished up with a performance of "New Slaves," the song which he debuted in dramatic fashion last night.

Earlier this week Kanye performed at Roseland Ballroom where he ranted about paparazzi and not being a celebrity. He said, "Hell nah I ain't doing no motherfucking SNL skits, this my goddamn life. This ain't no motherfucking joke."

Last night, Yeezy season was in full effect as he premiered his new single, "New Slaves," at 66 different locations across the world. The viral installation did get shut down in several locations. However, Kanye did get his point across—the visuals of his face went viral, leaving fans more than excited for tonight's performances.

Thoughts on the new music? Leave them in the comments.

UPDATE: Kanye just took to Twitter to upload the lyrics of "Black Skinhead." Below that is footage from the end credits of SNL, where Yeezy offered an interesting gaze at his surroundings. Clearly the man knows that the spotlight is on him.
