Kanye West to Perform on ‘SNL’ Finale

Kanye West

Set your DVRs. Kanye West is closing out “Saturday Night Live” with a bang. The hip-hop icon has been booked as the musical guest for the season finale.

“SNL” confirmed the rumors by announcing that Yeezy will perform on the May 18 episode with host Ben Affleck. This marks his fifth time performing on the show. His last appearance was in October 2010 to promote his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

It’s unknown what he will perform, but he has been in the studio in Paris working on new material. He was at his label Def Jam earlier this week to play some of his latest work.

In addition to music, the rapper is gearing up for fatherhood. His girlfriend Kim Kardashian is due to give birth in June.

    Besides Grammys there is no better affirmation of superstar status of an artist who has performed a record four times on SNL. SNL has been used as a barometer to gauge artist’s popularity in mordern times. The fact that Kanye has been producing good music excuse the pun for over a decade is amazing. A producer that raps was always going to be that good.
