‘SNL’ Shows You the Early Years of Your Favorite Hip Hop Stars

snl before they were stars

'SNL' always gets a lot of mileage out of celebrity impersonations, but it really shines when it take those impersonations and puts them into truly strange and unusual new circumstances, forcing you to look at your favorite (and least favorite) stars in a brand new light. Last night's mid-season premiere took the usual formula and milked it for all that it was worth, resulting in the best sketch of the night: a look back at the TV careers of various hop hop artists before they hit it big.

‘SNL’ Takes On New Year’s Resolutions With “Resolution Revolution”

resolution revolution

Few jokes are as tired as "New Year's resolutions are hard!", but at least the latest episode of 'SNL' presented a joke as creaky as this in the form of a music video, which gives it far more life than it deserves. We don't know if "Resolution Revolution" will be a viral sensation like some of the show's past video sketches (probably not), but it's pretty funny and pretty darn catchy.

SNL Drake

'SNL' finally returns from its long winter nap tonight with an all-new episode and a very special guest. Hip-hop artist Drake drops in to act as both host and musical guest, and just in case you were worried he might not hack it in the acting department, we'll remind you that once upon a time he starred on a little Canadian teen show called 'Degrassi.' We're keeping our fingers crossed for that 'Degrassi' sketch, 'SNL.' Don't let us down! New cast member Sasheer Zamata also makes her debut tonight, so we're pretty excited about that, too. So how did Drake and the new recruit do? Read on for our review of tonight's all-new 'SNL'!

'SNL' certainly earned a bit of good faith in its commitment to addressing the racial diversity of the current 39th season cast, most recently confirming black female performer Sasheer Zamata as the newest addition to the featured players, but it seems the changes haven't stopped there. Two more women of color have joined the team, adding fellow auditioners LaKendra Tookes (above left) and Leslie Jones (above right) to the writing staff.

SNL Jonah Hill 2014 Bastille January 25
NBC

'SNL' made something of a curious choice in picking rap artist Drake for their first host of 2014, acting as both ringleader and musical guest for the evening, but the long-running NBC sketch comedy series' second choice of the year feels much more on point. 'Wolf of Wall Street' and '22 Jump Street' star Jonah Hill will return to the 'SNL' stage on January 25, but who will join as musical guest?
