West - or, rather, Ye - announced the name change shortly before he appeared on "Saturday Night Live", the widely watched television skit show.

The encounter between the two rappers, one of them homeless, the other a superstar, took place shortly before the much-anticipated release of Kanye West's new album.

After performing several songs on the show Saturday, the rapper went on a rant about President Trump as "SNL" went off the air.

"I wanna cry right now, black man in America, supposed to keep what you're feelin' inside right now..."

"And what this shows is we can't be controlled by monolithic thought".

Instead, West invited the cast up to the stage as he ran down his final performance of the night.

West also reiterated his now infamous line about claims that President Trump is racist.

After the night's broadcast ended, he began a political speech while wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, which he called his "Superman cape". "That's the Democratic plan", West said.

And stump he did, giving an impassioned lecture to a disapproving audience after his final performance was cut for time - a lecture that was met with resounding boos from the crowd, according to The Daily Beast.

The self-proclaimed "God" is set to release album number nine very soon too, which will be named Yandhi. West says with a melody playing in the background.

One person tweeted: "Either I accidentally dropped some acid, or Kanye West dropped a few unbleeped f-bombs on #snl while dressed as a bottle of Perrier".

West had been a last-minute replacement for Ariana Grande, who was originally scheduled to be Saturday's musical guest before dropping out, citing "emotional reasons". He concluded his time on stage by saying there is a strong need for a "dialogue, and not a diatribe" to make changes in the country.
