He did not disappoint. With Yeezy season being in full effect, Kanye West brought his new music in the shape of Yeezus cuts “Black Skinhead” — which features a sample of Marilyn Manson’s “Beautiful People” — and the globally projected “New Slaves” to the musical stage of the Saturday Night Live finale. For the former, he was clad in a black-studded leather jacket and the upcoming all-red Nike Air Yeezy 2′s, screaming his lyrics with a live band in support. He was accompanied by an impressive barrage of imagery which alternated between Doberman Pinschers and price tags, including the phrase “Not For Sale.”
UPDATE: We received confirmation from his camp that Kanye did not sample Marylin Manson’s “Beautiful People” on “Black Skinhead.” The beat was made from scratch and that’s him screaming and breathing on the track.
