After unveiling his Yeezy Season 3 as well as debuting his latest solo album, Kanye West continued the next chapter of The Life Of Pablo as he returned to the holy stages of Saturday Night Live. For on-stage support, he enlisted a cast that included El DeBarge, Kelly Price, A$AP Bari, Young Thug, The-Dream for a performance of “Highlights.” A special shout goes out to Young Lord for delivering a more than memorable dance choreography. The performance took place in front of a screen with old video game imagery. For his second performance, Yeezy brought out Kirk Franklin, The-Dream, Kelly Price, Chance to perform “Ultra Light Beams.” Prior to that, Kanye was destroyed by SNL’s Kyle Mooney in an excerpt from the pre-taped rap battle.
Kanye has appeared on SNL numerous times in the past. Most recently, he performed in February 2015 for the show’s 40th anniversary special, whe he premiered an earlier version of T.L.O.P.‘s “Wolves” featuring Sia and Vic Mensa.
