Drake has been making big moves outside of the music industry and he isn’t letting up at all. Reports claim Drizzy will be hosting and performing next month on “Saturday Night Live” on NBC.
According to reports, Drake will be taking on both hosting and performing on the sketch comedy show, fresh off his “Would You Like A Tour.”
“OVO is taking over “SNL.” Fresh off his “Would You Like a Tour,” Drake will host and perform on the first “Saturday Night Live” of the new year. The Canadian rapper will pull double duty on the January 18 episode of the show, it was announced on Saturday. He previously served as musical guest opposite Anna Faris in 2011. The former “Degrassi” star can currently be seen on the big screen, making a cameo in the comedy Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. He recently received five Grammy nominations in categories including Best Rap Album for Nothing Was the Same.” (Rap-Up)

“Today also happens to be one of the best days of my life. Growing up, I’m sure we all idolized this guy, he goes by the name of Michael Jordan. So today, I came to Portland and officially became inducted into the Team Jordan family.” (Billboard)
