Kanye West just premiered his brand new video for “New Slaves” in Brooklyn, and its coming to 66 more buildings across the globe. The US locations are San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Toronto, and New York. Click here for specifics on all of the 66 locations. The song is called “New Slaves” and we already have footage of the music video airing in Brooklyn, which you can view up above. We’ll keep you up to date as better footage is provided, and also don’t forget that tomorrow Kanye will be performing live on SNL.

LYRICS

My mama was raised in an era when/Clean water was only served to the fairer skin Doing clothes you would have thought I had help/But they wouldn’t be satisfied unless I picked the cotton myself You see its broke n—a racism/That’s that don’t touch anything in the store And there’s rich n—a racism/That’s that come here please buy more What you want a Bentley, fur coat and diamond chain?/All you blacks want all the same things Used to only be n—as /Now everybody play me Spending everything on that Alexander Wang/New Slaves

[Hook] You see it’s leaders and it’s followers/But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower You see it’s leaders and it’s followers/But I’d rather be a dick than a swallower

[Verse 2] I throw these Maybach keys/I wear my heart on my sleeve I know that we the new slaves/I see the blood on the leaves I see the blood on the leaves/I see the blood on the leaves I know that we the new slaves/I see the blood on the leaves They throwing hate at me/Want me to stay at ease Fuck you and your corporation/Y’all n—as can’t control me I know that we the new slaves/I know that we the new slaves I’m about to wild the fuck out/I’m going Bobby Boucher I know that pussy ain’t free/You n—as pussy, ain’t me Y’all throwing contracts at me/You know that n—as can’t read Throw him some Maybach keys/Fuck it, c’est la vie I know that we the new slaves/Y’all n—as can’t fuck with me Y’all n—as can’t fuck with Ye/Y’all n—as can’t fuck with Ye I move my family out the country /So you can’t see where I stay So go and grab the reporters/So I can smash their recorders Yeah they confuse us with bullshit/Like the New World Order Meanwhile the DEA/Teamed up with the CCA They tryna lock n—as up/They tryna make new slaves See that’s that private-owned prison/Get your piece today They prolly all in the Hamptons/Braggin’ ’bout they maid Fuck you and your Hampton house/I’ll fuck your Hampton spouse Came on her Hampton blouse/And in her Hampton mouth Y’all ’bout to turn shit up/I’m ’bout to tear shit down I’m ’bout to air shit out/Now what the fuck they gon’ say now?
