Chance the Rapper turns into Chance the Dancer to prepare for his hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend.
In the first promo for the episode, Lil Chano receives a pep talk from Beck Bennett. “Usually, I just dance a little bit,” he says. Soon, the duo is joined by several other cast members, including Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Chris Redd, and Heidi Gardner.
Walking by the dance party, Kenan Thompson peaks inside and comes up with a reason for all of the fun. “Smoking my stuff,” he shakes his head. “Smoking my stuff.”
The 30-second spot arrives in anticipation of this weekend’s episode of the iconic comedy program. Hosted by Chance the Rapper for the first time ever, the show is also set to feature Eminem as musical guest.
“SNL” isn’t Chance’s only endeavor outside of music. He’s also an executive producer on “Magnify,” a new documentary series on Fox Sports, along with NBA stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
