Kanye West Unleashes the Fury of 'Black Skinhead' on 'SNL'
Rapper debuts more new music following big 'New Slaves' launch

The night after launching his track "New Slaves" with a film projection on the outside of 66 buildings around the world, Kanye West returned to Saturday Night Live with more new music, and all of his fury intact.

West opened by debuting another unreleased new song, "Black Skinheads." Set against a spare thumping drum track, West spat the lyrics out in front of another projected backdrop, which alternated abstractly disturbing black-and-white imagery with colorful vintage price tags and the declaration "Not for sale." West later tweeted a photo of the lyrics written out by hand, including the lines "You see a black man with a white woman/at the top floor they gone come to kill King Kong/Middle America packed in/came to see me in my black skin."

Kanye West Premieres 'New Slaves' With Video Projections Around the World

For his second set, West returned to the stage with "New Slaves." A close-up of his own face was projected behind him as he rapped, echoing the imagery of Friday night's launch.

Both songs presumably reflect something of the sound and content of West's sixth solo LP. And while the rapper has not yet officially confirmed any of the details, an Instagram posted by Kim Kardashian last night seemed to confirm rumors that the album will be called Yeezus and is due out on June 18th.
