Ahead of his hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Drake stopped by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday. The “Trophies” rapper, who was clean-shaven for the show, shared what it was like to do the table read and asked “SNL” alum Jimmy for some advice.
“Yesterday I did the read-through and it was like probably one of the best days of my life,” he said.
The former “Degrassi” star also recalled his first-ever audition. “It was the first audition I went on, but it was also the day that I got accepted by these real cool Jewish kids at school,” he said.
It was also the first time he tried weed. “I started really getting paranoid. I thought I had completely ruined my life. I was splashing water on my face like a Clearasil commercial,” laughed Drake.
He was “devastated” and didn’t tell his mom, but he got a call back and landed the role of Jimmy Brooks.
But these days, he doesn’t take any drugs before he goes on stage. “I don’t understand people that can go under the influence of anything really,” said Drake.
Fallon also challenged him to a game of beer hockey. While Drizzy was confident in his skills, he wasn’t able to pull off a win against the soon-to-be “Tonight Show” host.
Watch them battle it out in a friendly game.
