Kanye’s currently preparing for his return to the solo scene, which he’s already been recording tracks for the upcoming follow-up to his 2010 release “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.” West last performed on SNL in 2010 where he hit the stage to perform “Power” and “Runaway” with Pusha T.
While he currently hasn’t released any material from his untitled sixth studio album, the album’s first single “I Am A God” is expect to surface at any moment which we’re hoping he’ll give a performance for the song during the live event. SNL’s 38th season finale episode is set to go down May 18th at 11:30pm ET/PT on NBC.
