Drake takes over Saturday Night Live

The Canadian pulled double duty as the host and musical guest on last night’s SNL and shined through out the night. The actor turned rapper/singer displayed Timberlake levels of dexterity in his first turn in the hosting role. The added bonus from this episode is the noticeable presence of new SNL cast member Sasheer Zamata. The enduring comedy show recently came under criticism for the lack of Black female performers and writers recently brought Zamata on board and she delivered in her debut. Drake might have been the perfect catalyst to bring the various writing voices on the show together in sketches like Drake’s bar mitzvah. Now if they can stop Keenan from making every impression sound like Al Sharpton the NBC classic might be on to something.
