In an effort to promote his next album, rapper Drake made his big “Saturday Night Live” debut over the weekend and not only performed, but also flexed his acting chops in a couple of skits where he rapped about stealing kids’ candy on Halloween on Weekend Update, and sat down for an extremely awkward interview with cast member Andy Samberg in an SNL digital short.
“I was begging everybody like, ‘Please let me get a skit. Please let me be involved in something.’ So I believe last word I got was that I’ll be working on something or doing something with the show other than performing,” Drake told MTV News before he appeared on SNL.
“I’m eager to act. I’m eager to make people laugh or, you know, accept a dramatic role. I’m just excited to get back into that. I miss it,” he shared, adding that the SNL cast and the atmosphere has him wanting to act again.
