VIDEO: “SNL” Promotion Video Debuts Clips Of Drake

Drake-SNL-promo-608x443Drake is set to host “Saturday Night Live” on Jan. 15, where he will be both the host and the musical guest of the night. The rapper flexed his comedic muscles for a teaser video to promote the show’s first episode of the year. This will also be the debut of new cast member, Sasheer Zamata, who is the first black woman to be hired on the show in quite some time.

The video showcased a series of awkward interactions between Drake and “SNL” cast members Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoh. Drake even treated his ‘Degrassi’ fans a few moments of albeit dramatic acting skills from the Canadian soap opera back in the day. After all, it was Drizzy’s role as Jimmy Brooks on the show that started his rise to fame. He played for two seasons and left in 2007 to pursue his rapping career.
