Kanye West is not a fan of Saturday Night Live…or its Kanye-bashing skits.

In his latest single, "Power," the outspoken, grudge-holding rapper is sounding off over the SNL sketch with Taylor Lautner referencing West's now-infamous MTV Video Music Awards debacle last September.

"F--k SNL and the whole cast," West raps in the song, which leaked online Friday. "Tell ‘em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass."

That was just the beginning of his bleep-worthy SNL tirade on the track, which is expected to be on his highly anticipated fifth album, Good A** Job, featuring soul singer Dwele.


The 32-year-old Grammy winner has managed to steer clear of the spotlight since he bum-rushed the stage while Taylor Swift was accepting her award for Best Female Video  at the VMAS. He later declared that he would be taking a break to focus on himself and his music.

While sightings of West have been scarce, the superstar performer was reportedly in Hawaii in early April wrapping up the album, which may also feature Drake and Big Sean, according to billboard.com.

West is set to perform at the Loop Dreams Benefit concert in Chicago on June 8, and could include "Power" in his set, according to kanyelive.com.
