Last night Drake served as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live and, considering his last time hosting was a major success, we knew we were in for a treat (even without Drake's beloved beard).
The SNL writers had a ton of material to work with from Drake's new album, theendless memes about him, and of course, working Drake's musical talent into as many skits as possible.
Speaking of those memes, they're really hurting Drake's feelings. And so what else can he do but sing about it in his opening monologue. Plus, Rihanna makes a cameo (sort of).
Remember a few months back when Meek Mill made the mistake of starting beef with Drizzy? Well, looks like Drake still has some trust issues and now everyone on the SNL set (even Lorne Michaels) is getting the 'Back to Back' treatment.
Recovering quickly, Drake went back to his nice and polite Canadian roots to play a game of Black Jeopardy and let's just say the Americans in the room were a little lost in translation: "I know you're speaking English, but it ain't my English," game show host Keenan Thompson explains.
And finally, in case you weren't up to date on all the most recent rap happenings, Jay Pharoh is here to catch you up on the Monthly Rappers Meeting with some spot-on impersonations of your favorite rappers like Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, and of course, Drake :
On top of all the hilarious skits, Drake pulled double duty as musical guest and performed his hit song 'One Dance' and'Hype' from his latest album.
Bravo, Drake! We can't wait for your inevitable return to the SNL stage.
