A crazy weekend for Kanye West was capped off by a stellar performance on the finale of Saturday Night Live. Following up on his own promotions of “New Slaves” on the buildings of various metropolitan areas across the world, the Saturday Night Live segment included the aforementioned song as well as “Black Skinhead” — a song featuring a sample of Marilyn Manson’s “Beautiful People.” Beyond music, the cultural icon has often been a talking point in the realm of fashion to which Yeezy didn’t disappoint, taking to the stage in a black-studded leather jacket paired with an upcoming iteration of the Air Yeezy.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We previously reported that Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead” features a sample of “Beautiful People” by Marilyn Manson. Further information reveals that the beat was actually produced from scratch by West himself, featuring the rapper’s own voice on the track.
