On Friday night, Kanye West debuted his new music video for “New Slaves” projected on 66 buildings across the globe, while last night, he took over Saturday Night Live with a performance of the same song, as well as another new one called “Black Skinhead.” The title of his follow up album to “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” will be controversially called “Yeezus” and will release June 18th. Kim Kardashian took to her Instagram recently to give the first look at the album packaging.
The moment we have all been waiting for finally took place earlier tonight on Saturday Night Live. Kanye West was the musical guest on the season finale of the the late night show where he debuted a new song called “Black Skinhead.” After the jump you can watch him perform “New Slaves” which he debuted across the globe last night. “Yeezus” drops June 18th.
You can also check the lyrics to “Black Skinhead” after the jump as well.
Looks like Kanye West is going Hollywood as he was spotted shooting a cameo for the upcoming film “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Yeezy was reportedly spotted in Atlanta filming his scene on a rooftop with Christina Applegate and Paul Rudd. It is said that the rap star will be involved in another famous fight scene that surely will get the people going. We will have to wait until December to see him on the big screen though, but he may have some news for us a little earlier than that.
UPDATE: Drake is also set to appear in Anchorman 2 as well. Hit the jump to see a pic of him on set shooting his scene.
Ludacris has been dropping solid tracks the past 5 Fridays. He is almost ready to deliver his new mixtape called “#IDGAF” which he plans to drop May 24th.

Looks like the June 18th release date Kanye West tweeted was in fact for his upcoming album. Rap-Up confirms that Ye will be releasing his new album titled “Yeezus” on that day. Last night he premiered “New Slaves” which he projected on 66 buildings in major 10 cites all over the globe. The 35 year old is set to perform tonight on SNL and expected to debut more new material. Yeezy season is officially here!
