The May 18th performance will mark Kanye’s fifth visit on the sketch comedy show. Though he currently has no material out, Donda’s boy has been in Paris, recording new material for his upcoming sixth album. According to internet scuttlebutt, the first single from the unnamed solo project is “I Am God.” Guess we’ll find out May 18.
Hosting the season finale will be actor/director Ben Affleck.
