Watch Skits Of Drake From SNL [Videos]

Drake hosted SNL for the third time Saturday night. The Degrassi star-turned-rapper gave it his all upon his return to Studio 8H in his second double-duty stint as host and musical guest (in support of his new albumViews). He even shaved his beard for the occasion.

Drake showed off his range over the course of numerous skit. He played every character in his playbook, from oblivious Jamican Canadian to stern school chaperone. His updated version of “Back to Back” was a particular crowd favorite.

And now, here is Drake on SNL for Season 41’s penultimate episode:

In what was arguably the best digital short of the season, the Grammy winner drew inspiration for his latest verses from a plethora of rage-inducing #FirstWorldProblems. His lyrics grew more explicit with each alleged confrontation, like when Pete Davidson made fun of him for having trouble with his television set, or when Aidy Bryant removed his baseball cap from a nearby chair to make herself comfortable.

Before busting out a Rihanna wig to deny rumors that they’re more than just friends, Drake embraced his role in Internet culture with a clever ballad that poked fun at the many memes inspired by his “Hotline Bling” dance moves, his time on Degrassi and the cover of his latest album release.

In the latest edition of one of SNL’s most reliable game show sketches, Drake tackled a character he was born to play: a black Canadian. Though we could’ve done without the self-referential humor when host Darnell Hayes claimed that no good rappers have ever come from north of the border, Rick Moranis-enthusiast Jared was “hilarious, dawg” with his thick Toronto accent, his inability to be impolite and his failure to excel at such categories as “Oh Snap!” and “Bruh.” Thankfully for Jared, he still managed to win by uttering the secret black phrase of the day.

Pharaoh is SNL‘s go-to impressionist these days, and for good reason. This was the second time he brought a parade of impersonations to the Update desk this season, but his A+ channeling of rappers such as Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Will Smith (aka a rapper Colin Jost likes) put this segment over the top. Drake confronting him about his Drake impression was just the icing on the cake.

Whether you love or hate this sketch in which Dick Patterson is a 52-and-9-months-old man with the body of a baby, there’s no denying Beck Bennett’s commitment to the bit. His MVP-level physicality was no less impressive here, but the sketch surrounding the character’s return left much to be desired and made little-to-no use of Drake. This time around, Patterson was brought in as a potential Republican candidate for president should Donald Trump not secure enough delegates to avoid a contested convention. Blerg.


FInally, Drake performs “One Dance” and “Hype”
