Rapper Kanye West decided to team up with funnyman Mike Myers, for a topical comedies sketch, after his attack on President George Bush during a live telethon for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
West, who spoke out at that time that about the treatment of the black people in the disaster, saying that "George Bush doesn't care about black people", was invited on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live. Myers, who stood alongside West during the telethon remarks, also came to the show.
The host, Lorne Michaels sent cast member Finesse Mitchell into West's dressing room to tell him not to say anything controversial during the show. West, infuriated, came out from his room and confronted Michaels.
He met then Myers on the corridors, who told him: "How's everything going? I haven't seen you since... when was it? I forgot, the telethon."
"I got a lot of calls about it - mostly from the FBI and the IRS. They rook away from my American citizenship. Still got my Canadian one to fall back on! I'm pretty sure my phone's tapped. They follow me now."
Kanye and Myers talked for a while and decided to do a sketch together, about everything that happened during and after the New Orleans tragedy and how it has influenced their life.
