Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment are the special guests on tonight’s SNL. Throughout the week, he’s been hyping up #ChanceOnSNL through funny promos with host Chris Hemsworth and cast member Bobby Moynihan that range from a “hot guy sandwich” segment to jokes about being three best friends.
Chance as the musical guest marks a very important moment in SNL history because he’s the first independent artist ever. If you look through the previous performers, as FakeShoreDrive graciously gathered for us, you see that major label artists like Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West have appeared. Chance continues to make strides through his grassroots movement.
During his performance of his new song "Somewhere in Paradise," he pulled off some great dance moves and even brought out Jeremih. For "Sunday Candy," he hinted that another mixtape is on the way: "Then the third tape slide down the chimney." He also made a reference to Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke, who was charged with the first degree murder of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.
Check out his performances below.
