Last night Kanye West played Saturday Night Live. Everyone tuned in for those two new tracks, “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves,” but we also gleaned a few new things about Kanye, his upcoming album and his peculiar state of mind.
1) Kanye’s not in a great mood
It’s been looking more and more like Mr. West is bumming hard. When your boo is the most famous celeb in the world — and she’s very pregnant — struggle-face pap shots, running into street signs, going toro on paparazzi… it’s gonna happen. After hearing “Black Skinhead” and “New Slaves,” everyone’s officially on notice that Kanye ain’t playin’ with people right now. Do not test him right now unless you have a desire to be turned into an outrageous internet meme.
On the bright side, he’s still making music that’s clever. By Thanksgiving, your favorite rapper will be trying to emulate that Kanye sound.
2) But he has been hitting the gym
Kanye didn’t just show off his new music on SNL, he also showed off his man cleavage. During his performance of “New Slaves,” West rocked a low cut, schmall that showed off his breast meat. As Nas would say, “don’t say the car is topless / Say the titties is out” Clearly, he’s been working on more than music in Paris…
