When Kanye hinted at the release of his new album YANDI for September 29, we were all skeptical about whether it will actually arrive on time but the chances became better once SNL announced Kanye as the performer for the season premiere tonight. "You know it's like the plan they did, to take the fathers out the home and promote welfare".
Fans and social media users have shown mixed reactions to West's cryptic Twitter reveal.
Kanye said he was pressured not to come on stage wearing what is now his signature "Make America Great Again" hat. He accused them of "bullying" him backstage over his choice to wear the controversial hat, though obviously no one stopped him from doing so on the show and in all the promotional material.
Later, Kanye took the stage with Teyana Taylor to perform "We Got Love".
West then gave a speech defending his support for President Trump at the end of his "Saturday Night Live" appearance, eliciting boos from the audience and causing cast members to shake their heads.

The colonel was in 2014 awarded Russia's highest medal, the Hero of Russian Federation . The 39-year-old GRU military intelligence service colonel is a married father-of-one.
Still, he thanked the people behind him for giving him the platform even though they "don't agree".
"They bully me backstage".
The speech was cut from the broadcast but was filmed by former SNL star Chris Rock, who was in the audience, and posted on his Instagram Stories. Numerous cast members standing behind West are seen keeping their heads down.
"There's so many times I talk to, like, a white person about this and they say, 'How could you like Trump?"
