Fuck SNL and the whole cast

from Kanye West (Ft. Dwele) – Power Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

On Saturday Night Live Taylor Lautner (who at the time was dating Taylor Swift) made fun of Kanye for interrupting his girlfriend at the MTV Video Music Awards because he was sad Beyoncé didn’t win =(. When Swift herself appeared on SNL after the controversy, she alluded to the incident in her opening monologue.

Kanye was also mad at the show for asking a question about his mom, “as a joke” (that’s low!)

Interestingly, he later performed this song live on SNL, but changed this verse for the occasion. We can only wonder about what could have been…

Furthemore, Ye would premier two songs off of Yeezus on SNL (“Black Skinhead” & “New Slaves”). I guess that beef has been squashed.
