It’s that time of year once again, as Christmas lurches a little close for comfort, and SNL prepares to send off the year in style. And speaking of style, Chance the Rapper gets to join in on the SNL promo games, as the first look at Casey Affleck’s hosting debut gets in the Christmas tree-decorating spirit.
Chance the Rapper
Though Chance the Rapper has been steadily building buzz since his cult-favorite mixtape Acid Rap hit the Internet in 2013, this year is when he grew into a full-fledged phenomenon. He released his third studio effort with the massively successful Coloring Book mixtape, sonned his personal hero Kanye West on the man’s own track, effected positive social change in Chicago with the Warmest Winter initiative, and became the face of Kit-Kat candy bars, all while touring pretty much non-stop. With the world of music now securely under his control, the young polymath has turned his sights on the next form of entertainment, so say goodbye to Chance the Rapper and hello to esteemed thespian Chancellor Bennett.
