If you are a fan of Chance the Rapper, Saturday, October 26 is going to be a great night for you. Over the weekend, it was announced that Chance will be returning to Saturday Night Live where he will serve as the host and also perform as the musical guest.
Chance the Rapper says that hosting and performing is a “lifelong dream.”
Chance will become just the 27th person in the show’s long history to serve as both host and musical guest on the same night and he is promising the show of a lifetime. The announcement came on social media with a brief statement that had Chance’s excitement oozing through.
“ATTENTION!! IM FINALLY ACCOMPLISHING MY LIFE LONG GOAL!! THANK YOU JESUS!!

“THANK YOU DONALD GLOVER AND DRAKE WHO CAME BEFORE ME AND MC HAMMER WHO HELPED ME REALIZE THIS DREAM AS A CHILD!! THANK YOU LORNE AND EVERYONE AT 8H!! PREPARE FOR THE SHOW OF A LIFETIME.”
Chance has previously stolen the show during appearances on Saturday Night Live and we’ll have to see just how many sketches he will be a part of when he’s pulling double duty on October 26. He has recently been working on some stand-up in his free time so we will be excited to see what he’s able to pull off when he takes the stage.
We will definitely have our popcorn ready.
