After using a few choice curse words against NBC’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ in his song ‘Power,’ it appears that Kanye West has buried the hatchet with the sketch comedy show and has signed on as a musical guest next month. The network announced Monday that West will perform on the Oct. 2 show which will be hosted by actor Bryan Craston, star of the AMC critically acclaimed series ‘Breaking Bad.’

This will be the fourth time that West has performed on the show, and the first since his mishap with Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards that forced him to take a break from the spotlight. ‘SNL’ spoofed the incident last year, when Swift acted as the show’s host, and again when her then rumored boyfriend Taylor Lautner hosted.

Yeezy didn’t take too kindly to their quips and put his feelings to song. “F— ‘SNL’ and the whole cast/Tell ’em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole a–,” he raps in ‘Power.’ Prior to the Swift and Lautner spoofs, West ironically made fun of his previous award show mishaps on an ‘SNL’ episode.

Other guests for the new season of ‘SNL’ include recently busted singer Bruno Mars, who is featured on B.o.B‘s hit ‘Nothin’ on You,’ Travie McCoy’s ‘Billionaire’ and co-wrote of Cee-Lo‘s ‘F— You, is billed to perform on the show October 9. Katy Perry is the musical guest for the ‘SNL’ season premiere, which airs live on September 25.
