Chance The Rapper and Eminem Roll Out New Songs on Saturday Night Live

chance the rapper and eminem team up for saturday night live

Chance The Rapper and Eminem teamed up on Saturday to shine bright like diamonds on the Saturday Night Live stage.

Spoiler alert: the biggest shock of the episode was that we finally got to see Chance The Rapper without a hat (yes, he can breathe without a hat and he wasn’t even hiding anything abnormal beneath it).

And even though Chance and Eminem didn’t perform in a duet (hip hop fans expected to see at least one collaborative jam between the two on SNL), Chance and Em treated fans to solo performances and collaborations with other artists.

Chance The Rapper returned to the SNL stage for a third time, but this time it was to flex his hosting muscles. And Chance passed the SNL-hosting test with flying colors, as the rapper had the audience on the edge of their seats with his top-notch jokes and acting.

In the position of the captain of the SNL ship, Chance pulled no punches when addressing the controversies surrounding U.S. President Donald Trump. The rapper teamed up with cast members Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson to perform Come Back, Barack, a musical plea to the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama.

As impeachment calls grow louder in America, the SNL audience seemed to love the 90s R&B-inspired jam. The lyrics read, “Come back, Barack / We need you oh so bad / 2020 is looking sad / Like really sad, like super sad, like what-the-hell-we-gonna-do sad.”

Even though Chance The Rapper is a rapper (duh, his name says it all), Chancelor Johnathan Bennett (his real name) sure knows how to deliver a family-friendly Thanksgiving tune.

Hoping to make his Thanksgiving song a new jingle – similar to what Mariah Carey’s All I Need For Christmas is You is for the holiday season – Chance made a $1 million pledge to the Chicago Public Schools… only to say that he doesn’t have that kind of money yet.

Note: Chance the Rapper’s net worth as of May 2017 was estimated $9 million.

After several hilarious SNL sketches, Eminem was next on rotation to roll out his performance of the newly-released Walk on Water.

While viewers didn’t get to see Beyoncé perform their hit song released earlier this month, Eminem treated fans to a solo performance of the song in addition to renditions of his older hits Stan and Love The Way You Lie.

Eminem didn’t bring Rihanna, who famously sung Love The Way You Lie, to perform the 2010 hit. Instead, the rapper invited Skylar Grey, who originally wrote and performed the song before Rih Rih.

Even without Beyoncé and Rihanna, having Eminem as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live was enough to give us goosebumps and have us all fired up for his upcoming new album RƎVIVAL.

Shazam! Trailer Debuts At Comic Con

Published

on

Warner Bros is bringing Shazam to the big screen for the first time. Zachery Levi stars as the teenager that turns into a super hero with the magical word.

In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).

Shazam! opens April 5, 2019 and also stars Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Djimon Hounsou, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Ron Cephas Jones.

This is a huge tone shift from the dark work from BVS and Justice League.

Aquaman Is Ready To Rule The Seven Seas In First Trailer

Published

on

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the underwater epic Aquaman.

Jason Momoa and Director James Wan are changing the narrative of Aquaman with this standalone film. Wan spoke about his vision for the popular DC character.

“It’s going to look very different, it will feel very different, aesthetically, tonally, story-wise, it’s my own take. It’s a much more a traditional action-adventure quest movie…Aquaman has been the joke of the comic book world, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought how cool that would be. Let’s take the character everybody makes fun of and do something really interesting with him.”

For Momoa it’s really simple, “My job is to make this guy cool”.

Check out the official synopsis for the movie.

“From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman”, starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime — one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be … a king.”

Aquaman will be in theaters December 21.

The First Glass Trailer Is Officially Here

Published

Universal Pictures has released the first official trailer for Glass.

Glass is the long-awaited Unbreakable sequel, which also serves as a sequel to last year’s Split, finally arrives next year. Samuel L. Jackson is back as Mr. Glass, with James Mcavoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, and Bruce Willis as David Dunn.

Split was a surprise hit for M. Night Shyamalan and fans of Unbreakable. The movie made $40 million on the opening weekend and did a more than respectable $276 million worldwide, off a $9 million budget. But the biggest twist was finding out it was in the same universe as Unbreakable.

Samuel L. Jackson spoke about his character and working with James McAvoy.

“All of a sudden, my character has the thing he wanted: the heroic good guy, the bad guy, and I get to be in the middle of them. It has a distinct satisfaction if you remember what his theory was all along, that there are people out here with extraordinary powers who can do extraordinary things. And it’s amazing to watch James [McAvoy] have an argument with four different characters in front of my face.”

Glass is set to hit theaters January 18, 2019.
