Chance the Rapper returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend. It was his second time hosting the show, but his first as also the musical guest.

During his opening monologue, Chance donned a red Chicago Teachers Union shirt, showing support for the teachers during their ongoing strike. He mentioned the $1 million he famously donated to Chicago Public Schools in 2017, joking that it completely fixed the city’s school system. He also paid tribute to second-place finishers in a rap inspired by Chicago’s nickname, the Second City.

Chance appeared in multiple sketches throughout the night: He played a dancer for Earth, Wind & Fire in one, while in another, he reprised his “let’s do that hockey” sports reporter character in an e-sports sketch.


Chance also performed “Zanies and Fools” and “Handsome” from his debut album, The Big Day. Megan Thee Stallion appeared as a special guest for “Handsome,” marking her first appearance on the sketch comedy staple.

The Big Day peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and is stacked with big-name features, including Gucci Mane, Lil Durk, Nicki Minaj, and Shawn Mendes. 

Chance previously hosted SNL back in November 2017 with musical guest Eminem.
