By now, ladies should be over the fact Drake (without our permission) got rid of his facial hair, but none of that takes away from how hilarious he is. During Saturday Night Live, the Views rapper spent his night mocking and making light of several aspects of things he has dealt with the past year.
He started with the many memes that were created by his dancing in his “Hotline Bling” music video, but it was his infamous feud with rapper Meek Mill last summer that became the standout moment of the show. In the parody, the sketch highlights Drake’s inner feelings when he gets ignored and slightly disrespected by other members of the SNL cast, as well as the executive producer Lorne Michaels.
The sketch begins with SNL cast member Pete Davidson making fun of Drake for not knowing how to turn on a TV. On the outside, Drake seems to be fine, but in his head, he’s launching into a full-on rap beef, where he explains they used to be best friends, but not anymore. Then Leslie Jones doesn’t say hi to Drake in the hallway and it inspires another rap. “Most people I know would’ve said hi back,” he rhymes.
Drake also takes aim at a janitor lady who throws out his water bottle (“I had like 10 sips left/you so damn mean”) and Aidy Bryant, who sits on a chair where Drake’s hat was resting. “Actually, I was [using that chair], you b*tch,” He then randomly raps in his song about his lost hat, which has clearly affected him.
