Kanye West is angry … and letting out that anger on the “establishment”, despite being very much part of that establishment.
The rapper debuted two new songs over the weekend; the first on Friday night titled, “New Slaves”. Ye projected a video of himself rapping the tune on the sides of buildings in 66 cities, including New York, Chicago, Paris, Berlin and Sydney.
On the tune, the emotional rapper complains about the music industry that he willfully went into; the same industry that made him rich enough to wife-up Kim Kardashian, and rap about owning a Lamborghini Countach. The music is vintage Kanye, harkening back to his College Dropout days. That was when Mr. West rapped more about social issues and less about Yves Saint Laurent.
“I throw these Maybach keys / I wear my heart on my sleeve / I know that we the new slaves / I see the blood on the leaves,” West raps on the track. “I see the blood on the leaves / I see the blood on the leaves / I know that we the new slaves / I see the blood on the leaves.”
West also appeared on Saturday Night Live where he debuted “Black Skinhead”. The rapper appeared in front of a screen with the words “not for sale” on it. You can check out that performance below.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
