Drake Hosts and Performs on ‘SNL’

Drake

Drake proved that he can do it all, hosting and performing on the first “Saturday Night Live” of 2014. The Canadian rapper brought the laughs while playing Alex Rodriguez, Katt Williams, and even Lil Wayne as Steve Urkel in several hilarious skits.

During his monologue, he poked fun of his Jewish and black background by reenacting his Bar Mitzvah, and made his teacher swoon with his poetry during detention.

For the first performance of the evening, he delivered a medley of “Started From the Bottom” and his latest song “Trophies” while bathed in red lights.

He returned to sing “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and brought out Jhené Aiko for “From Time.” “You need you some of this Drake love,” Drizzy told her.

Following the show, he took to Instagram, writing, “Best night of my life.”

    @Justin Timberlake, ironic considering your username. JT = poster boy for white privilege and “overrated-ness”.

    @Justin Timberlake, Drake is a solid package, but now that he is nationally celebrated and sensationalized by white america, his persona and authenticity become hackneyed and reductive. Hold On, We’re Going Home is a prime embodiment of this. Everything from the ridiculous title to it’s alternative-mainstream and formulaic approach encapsulates my personal issues with Drake. If I hear one more little white girl trying to sing it, I’ll go crazy.

    Gotta admit, I don’t know a lot about Drake’s music, but I found the second song, “Started from the Bottom”, totally boring. The last song was nice; I liked the chick’s voice.

    I watched snl last night to support drake and I thought he did great! love, love from time … that was the song he wrote for zoe. good music and good skits further cementing the fact that his days on YCMB are limited. he’s too clean out & multifaceted to be on that hood label.

    Justin Timberlake got boring after his 3rd album. The album was fail and mundane but still popular cuz there’s no white guy like him (there has been no white michael-jackson-type-of-guy)
    Drake’s songs are great. “started from the bottom” is awesome. The only overrated thing about him is his acting, not his rap skills

    @nwhat, GOODbye! 4.2 million records of the 20/20 sold to date. NOBODY has a song like “that girl”, white, black, gray or green.
