Speaking of Kanye West, Here’s ‘Black Skinheads’ and ‘New Slaves’

Kanye West is not a comedian and won’t be doing no f-cking skits ever or whatever, but he did actually turn up to Saturday Night Live and perform two new songs from his upcoming album Yeezus (yes, seriously) – ‘Black Skinheads’ and ‘New Slaves’. Well, those are… provocative titles. Too bad the execution leaves a whole lot to be desired – and that’s coming from someone who can appreciate his musical talents despite thinking he’s batshit insane.

‘Black Skinheads’ seems to have some pretty grand aspirations, but uh, Kanye? Marilyn Manson called and he wants his beat back. Also, The Black Keys called and asked if you could return their vocal effects. Oops, wait, one more message here, sorry, nearly forgot. Wackness called and congratulated you for outdoing it.

As for ‘New Slaves’, I can deal with this slightly more, but it still sounds like he wrote this shit when he got some particularly potent weed and was having mild hallucinations. Sometimes that can be a good thing, but I just wish he would stop trying to accomplish so much in a single track. Not only that, but I wish he’d stop making it in-your-face to the point of contrivance. I bet Kim’s got this bumping in some of those pregnancy belly headphones, though.

  • Did he say the n-word on the live broadcast? It sure sounded like he threw some stuff out there that must have had the censors wringing their hands. All I could think while I was watching him was, “Y u so angry?! Is THIS what you’ve been working on in Paris?” The NOT FOR SALE on the Pinterest board behind him (that’s where he got that, right? Instagram?) seemed like a big f-u to Kris Jenner.

  • He should have done a skit of him running into a sign ! That is funny as hell in matter how many times I see it !
