Live from New York, it’s Yeezy season!

Kanye puts asses in seats [I'll let you insert your own Kanye butt joke here] and SNL is reportedly looking to capitalize on Yeezy's draw. According to FakeShoreDrive, Kanye will be returning to 30 Rockefeller Plaza in a few weeks to perform.

Reliable sources tell me that Kanye West will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on February 13th — just two days after Waves’ intended release date. This make sense as Kanye will be in NYC for his Madison Square Garden release event/Yeezy Season 3 launch, as well as NY Fashion Week

As much as we love the good people at FakeShoreDrive, “reliable sources” concern me, so take this information with a grain of salt. However, it does seem to make sense. As they pointed out, Kanye will be in New York and with WAVES fresh out the kitchen, so it would make sense that he'd return to a show he's been on good terms with lately.

If Kanye does in fact perform on February 13, it will be the (almost) one year anniversary of his last appearance on SNL, where he unveiled "Wolves" with Sia and Vic Mensa under his blanket fort. A memorable performance, but not quite as captivating as when he performed power in 2010. Yeezy always brings something special for Saturday Night Live, so let’s keep our fingers crossed he will, in fact, be there.

UPDATE: Saturday Night Live has confirmed that Kanye will be performing on February 

I wonder if he’ll tell the cast to kiss his whole asshole...
