Chance The Rapper is set to serve as both host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live on October 26th, following Season 45 hosts Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Stranger Things star David Harbour and Woody Harrelson.
The rapper first appeared as a musical guest on SNL in December 2015 and returned as host to the show nearly one year later. During his last stint as an SNL host, he appeared in a ’90s R&B sketch titled “Come Back, Barack” mourning the fact that Barack Obama was no longer president and portrayed a stand-in New York Rangers sports announcer who knew nothing about hockey; Chance recently reprised his hockey announcer role for an NHL ad.
