Chance the Rapper will grace the Studio 8H stage to make his Saturday Night Live hosting debut this weekend. Naturally, this resulted in Chance dropping in on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show for a televised chat about how much he wishes he could spend more time with Drake. For good measure, Chance also teased an SNL sketch he crafted with help from Donald Glover.
"It's the truth," Chance said when asked about his recent tweet about previous SNL host Drake. "I love Drake. I think we live in a time where people are ashamed to say how much they love Drake or enjoy what he does, and I'm totally rebelling against that. I just wanna say, shout out to Drake and your whole team. Shout out to Future, everybody. Great people."
As for his SNL plans, Chance revealed that three of his own ideas have made it to dress rehearsal. "I actually wrote five," he told Fallon. "I came here with five. You know, I'm a huge fan of the show and I know that when they bring guest hosts, they usually come with a few ideas at least, especially if they're into comedy, so I brought a few sketches by. One of them that made it, I actually gotta give credit to my good friend Donald Glover, who helped me with the idea. He's a great dude, as well."
This weekend will also finally give Chance the opportunity to hang with Eminem, someone he somehow hasn't met yet. "I am a huge, huge fan," he said. "I feel like it's my birthday week."
