Chance the Rapper Sings a Thanksgiving Song for His 'SNL' Monologue

Rapper and Leslie Jones in SNL promo video

"Saturday Night Live" has been pretty hit-or-miss in recent years. He opened the show with a amusing holiday song titled, "It's Thanksgiving Time" which was performed in part to raise the $1 million he has pledged to schools in Chicago.

For the 54% of Americans who didn't vote for Donald Trump, Barack Obama's leaving the White House felt like a bad breakup-a sudden, humiliating separation that's left us feeling vulnerable and bereft. "The only thing I'm here to celebrate is Thanksgiving", he said, before breaking out into song.

Chance the Rapper then used the rest of his monologue to sing about seeing family members you "normally fear" on Thanksgiving.

And it only got better from there.

Chance the Rapper, who hosted SNL this week, performed the ballad alongside cast members Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson, with all three lamenting the end of Obama's presidency.

In joint bases, the number of reports decreased slightly from 705 in 2015 to 670 in 2017. Then there was a slight decline previous year to 114.

"I'm in hell, dreaming about you and Michelle", the song continued.

"We didn't know just what we had".

When: Chance and the SNL crew will kick off the laughter at its regular 11:30 p.m. time slot.

The Chicago native continued to explain how there are no good Thanksgiving songs, and called out Mariah Carey for so clearly dominating Christmas every year with her timeless hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You".

While much of this skit surely was scripted and planned, we wouldn't be surprised if Chance ad-libbed a decent portion of it.
