Drake to Host First ‘Saturday Night Live’ Episode of 2014


He started from the bottom, and now he’s definitely at the top. Actor-turned-rapper Drake will be heading back to Saturday Night Live again, but this time as a host.

When he was the musical guest for the first time in 2011, Drake kept begging to be in a skit until finally he was cast as a werewolf who would steal candy from kids on Halloween. So now for the first episode of SNL in the new year, Drake will be both the host and musical guest. Looks like he can stand alongside Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, and Lady Gaga as the few who have been allowed to do both in the past.

Before that episode airs, though, expect new music from the rapper. Back in November, he said he would put out 5 new songs before 2014. The clock is ticking, so let’s see if he makes the deadline.

Watch a promo from his first time on SNL back in 2011 below:
