Ahead of his double duty on Saturday Night Live, Chance the Rapper dropped by The Tonight Show to discuss his recent LP The Big Day, his actual “big day” — his wedding — and Kanye West’s behavior at the event.
Jimmy Fallon first displayed a photo from Chance’s reception, with everyone — including the groom and Dave Chappelle — wearing a tuxedo, except for Kanye West, who showed up in black button-down short-sleeve shirt. “Everyone is wearing a nice tuxedo except for Kanye, he’s always getting into trouble,” Fallon said before Chance added, “He does his thing.”
Despite the lack of decorum, Chance said West was a great wedding guest. “He’s awesome. What I remember is he tried to join the wedding band,” the rapper said. “They were playing music, but he didn’t have his set-up, his beat machine, so he kind of stood next to them.”
Chance the Rapper later talked about his charitable work in the community, his new Netflix music competition show Rhythm + Flow, his family life and the wide-ranging guests who appear on The Big Day, from Nicki Minaj and Gucci Mane to Randy Newman. “It’s such a diverse cast because [there are] so many different sounds you play at a wedding,” he noted.
As for his role of musical guest and host of SNL this weekend, Chance the Rapper said, “Honestly, it’s been a dream for me since I was a little kid.”
