Chance The Rapper hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time this Saturday, but this was not his first go around on the show by any means. He has performed on the show three times, twice as a musical guest and once as a surprise appearance for “Ultralight Beam” for when Kanye West was a musical guest. He has also appeared in two skits before being an official host.
Let’s look back at Chance on SNL so far. I’m sure he will be back for me.
