Shortly after debuting his new song "New Slaves" on the buildings of 66 cities worldwide, Kanye West took to SNL to deliver two intense performances from his upcoming album Yeezus. From the sounds and the delivery of "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead," Kanye seems to be delivering an album that both College Dropout and 808's & Heartbreaks' biggest fans will love.
Stream the performances below, and hit the comments with your thoughts on Ye's new material.

Leave it to Kanye to find an inventive way to premiere a new single. With his appearance on SNL only hours away, I was sure the track would pop up some time today. Never did I think it'd be done like this.
Instead of passing his single along to Flex, or mysteriously tweeting the record, Kanye had a performance of "New Slaves" projected along 66 buildings across the world.
Check out the debut of "New Slaves" Ye's hometown of Chicago courtesy of GoWhereHipHop's Maks G.
As a huge Kendrick fan, I can't help but compare the subject matter to both parts 1 and 2 of "Vanity Slave," but I'm glad to see Kanye returning to his College Dropout roots.

This week has been G.O.O.D. for Hip Hop as Jay-Z silenced everyone with his track "Open Letter" and Pusha T debuted "Numbers On The Boards." The track, co-produced by Don Cannon and Kanye West, is confirmed to appear on his debut solo album My Name Is My Name.
You may have to listen to this a few times to catch all the bars, so head over to Rap Genius while you're at it to peep the lyrical explanations.
Our family Hov brought that real hip hop shit this morning so me and Pusha wanna keep that feeling going[Karen Civil]

After years of controversy surrounding the choices for MTV's Hottest MCs list, it's no surprise that this year is no different.
With the lineup currently listing Meek Mill as #10, Future as #9, A$AP Rocky as #8, Big Sean at #6, and Drake at #5, people and rappers alike have already taken to Twitter and interviews to air their opinions on the rankings.
None were more vocal than Kanye West, however who uncharacteristically called into Angie Martinez's Hot 97 to speak with DJ Enuff about being listed as #7.
Listen below as Kanye lists of reasons why he should be a top contender, states Lil Wayne is his #1 emcee, calls out Sway for a lack of loyalty, only to hang up the phone on DJ Enuff in typical "drop the mic" fashion:
Hit the jump to catch Weezy and Sway's response to Ye's rant:
That’s the ultimate compliment coming from a humble,great,extremely creative,& superior genius…I appreciate that Yeezy!

Now this is nice. New York producer RL Grime and L.A. DJ/producer Salva remix Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music's "Mercy" only using the hook and instrumental. This deserves some whip action.

Starshell, Mary J. Blige's protege, recruits G.O.O.D. Music's Kanye West and Big Sean to remix her track "Superluva." How did the new artist get a verse from Yeezy? I guess co-writing "Love Lockdown" has its perks!
