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.

Redman Opens Up About Not Being In How High 2

Published

on

Fans have been waiting for a sequel to How High for over 17 years. Many were shocked and disgruntled when the news broke that the original stars Method Man and Redman would not be featured in the movie.

In a recent interview with the Grass Routes podcast, Redman explained that film was developed without him and Meth.

“Well, first of all, shout out to Lil Yachty and Young DC Fly (sic) […] I’m always with the youth […] they’re just seizing the opportunity,” Red said in a phone interview. “[…] Long story short is that me and Meth was not aware that they were doing this transaction with the movie. I’m not mad at Yachty or DC Fly—like I said, it has nothing to do with them. And I’m not even upset because God always places things in the right position anyway; I’m just following the path.

“But my thing is when you have a brand, like Red and Meth, that kind of helped built and created this entity of How High and shooting a movie on marijuana and being in college […] those were all of our ideas. And when the deal came about, we wasn’t involved in it.”

The 46-year-old actor also spoke how the studio licensed the rights to another production company.

“What happened is that a branch that’s under Universal decided [they were] gonna shoot this movie. And they did not need permission from us because we didn’t own the rights to How High,” Red said. “[…] As far as me and Meth know, we were waiting on a new script to read for How High 2. Out of the blue, we get calls from everywhere, like, ‘Yo, Lil Yachty is starring in the movie,’ or ‘MTV picked up How High 2.’ And I’m like, ‘Wait a minute. We got writers that’s writing the movie. We got people up at Universal that’s giving us the green light. What’s going on?’
