CHICAGO — Chance the Rapper joined Saturday Night Live's last night for their last episode of the year as musical guest, as he brought onstage another local artist and offered up a holiday tribute to President Barack Obama.
During the Saturday's Christmas episode, Chance joined longtime SNL cast member Kenan Thompson to bid farewell to the Obama administration in a parody of Run-D.M.C.'s "Christmas in Hollis" — decked out in the legendary rap trio's signature track suit and gold chunky chains. The skit even featured a surprise appearance from Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels.
"We still got Barack / So you know what that means / We shooting some hoops in high-waist jeans," the duo rapped.
In addition to the "Jingle Barack" sketch, Chance performed two of his own tracks, bringing out Bronzeville native rapper Noname to perform the track "Finish Line/Drown" off his Grammy-nominated mixtape "Coloring Book."
Later he performed the song "Same Drugs" on piano, backed by Francis and the Lights.
Earlier this month, the Chatham native performed at the White House tree-lighting ceremony to help Obama usher in the holiday season.
