Kanye West took the stage at Saturday Night Live last night to debut an aggressive new track, “Black Skinhead.” He also performed “New Slaves,” a song West debuted on Friday. The songs will appear on his next record, Yeezus.

Dressed in a studded leather jacket, West’s stage presence on SNL was full of rage. He performed in front of a projection flipping through images reading “Followers,” “Special!” and “Discount Price” but always returning to the same statement: “Not For Sale.” His new song begins with some screams.

“For my theme song / My leather black jeans on / My by any means on / Pardon I’m gettin’ my Scream on,” starts “Black Skinhead.” West tweeted the lyrics the song this morning.

West slowed the tempo for “New Slaves”, standing in place for the entire performance, performing in front of a projection of eyes. Watch videos of both songs below.
