Live from New York, it’s the 6 God. Fresh off his Views release, Drake is coming to the Empire State for his latest appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

This is a return to “SNL” for Drizzy, who also pulled double duty during his Drakeover in 2014. That episode featured the T. Dot MC’s impressions of Lil Wayne and Katt Williams, among others.
During his recent OVOSOUND Radio interview, Drizzy seemed to tease this appearance, saying he wants to “go back to acting” and that he had “something nice coming up in May.”
Drake on acting: "I got something nice coming up in May. I'd love to go back to acting. It's all about the right decisions"
