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.

Published

on

Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for Ready Player One.  The video looks at the influence Steven Spielberg’s films of the 1980s had on the Ernests Cline’s best selling novel.

The featurette opens with scenes from some of Spielberg’s iconic films: Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Jurassic Park. 

Ready Player One is set 30 years in the future, the film finds the majority of the population taking refuge in a virtual-reality system called OASIS. It provides a nostalgic paradise after the rest of the world that has fallen to overpopulation, pollution, corruption — specifically ’80s nostalgia, thanks to the eccentric creator James Halliday’s (Mark Rylance) childhood affinity for the decade. When Halliday dies, he leaves his massive fortune up for grabs to whoever can solve the elaborate scavenger hunt he has hidden within OASIS, which is where our story begins. Tye Sheridan plays the plucky protagonist who is one of millions who embark on the scavenger hunt, while Olivia Cooke is the expert OASIS player Artemis, his foe and friend.

Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, TJ Miller, Lena Waithe, and Mark Rylance

Ready Player One is set to arrive in theaters on March 30, 2018

Peter Dinklage Is Ready For Game Of Thrones To End

Published

HBO announced that Game of Thrones won’t air the final season until 2019. One of the series longtime stars Peter Dinklage is ready for the show to end.

“It’s time,” the actor said at Variety’s Sundance Film Festival studio. “Storywise, not just for all our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”

Rumors have circulated that the final season of Game of Thrones will feature longer, possibly movie-length episodes. Most viewers already know the series won’t return this year. Dinklage, who plays the character Tyrion Lannister, didn’t clarify if he was referring to the longer shooting schedule or the rumored extended length of the episodes.

“It’s bittersweet when it’s time to move on with everything,” he said. “It’s always the sad part of our business, because you get pockets of great people for short amounts of time and then you have to move on and it’s always heartbreaking. Especially when you’ve spent more than a couple months with people.”
