Chance the Rapper on SNL: Come Back Barack!



Chance the Rapper on SNL

Guest host Chance the Rapper showed his comic chops and musical prowess during tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live, in which the rapper performed in a BoyzIIMen-esque 90s-style love song specially written for the Thanksgiving holiday. But this love song was for none other than former president Barack Obama.

“This time of year I get thankful baby, thankful for you. But now you’re gone and I don’t know what to do. So come back Barack,” the lovelorn rapper crooned. It would be funnier if it weren’t so. true.

The fictitious musical group that performed the song, De-Von-Tré is sure to reprise their performance, with series regular Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd rounding out the lovelorn threesome.

The performance has poignant timing, as it was a exactly one year ago this month that Emmy Award winner and series regular Kate McKinnon broke hearts with her tear-jerking post-election performance of “Hallelujah.”

Barack Obama has yet to respond to the performance, but he is currently hard at work on his gerrymandering project with Eric Holder to try help solve the redistricting problem that currently gives Republicans an unfair and almost permanent electoral advantage. For more information on gerrymandering and how to assist in the effort to end this abuse against  our free and fair elections, visit the National Democratic Redistricting Committee.
