Kanye West Debuts & Performs "Black Skinhead" & "New Slaves" on "Saturday Night Live"

On the season finale of "Saturday Night Live", Kanye West debuted a loud, relentless new track called "Black Skinhead", featuring screaming vocals and pounding drums, backed by projected images of snarling dogs and various slogans (including "new slaves" and "not for sale"). 
Update: Kanye has posted the lyrics to "Black Skinhead". See below. Also, the song samples Marilyn Manson's "The Beautiful People", according to MTV.

Last night, Kanye projected video of new track "New Slaves" on buildings across the world. He performed "New Slaves" as the second song of his "SNL" stint, but only the first half of the song (not the second, featuring Frank Ocean).
Watch video of both below, via Mr. World Premiere.
Ben Affleck hosted the episode of "SNL".
Both tracks are rumored to be on his new album, apparently titled Yeezus and out June 18.
Earlier this week, at a surprise show during Adult Swim's Upfront event, Kanye went on a rant about celebrity culture, saying "Somebody asked me, 'When you do SNL, is you going to do a skit about the paparazzi and shit? And humanize yourself?... I ain't here to apologize to no motherfuckers, man....I ain't runnin' for office." He then appeared in promos for the episode alongside Affleck and Fred Armisen.
