With seven GRAMMY nods for his Coloring Book mixtape tucked neatly inside his back pocket, an appearance on The Hamilton mixtape, a performance at the White House’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony, a Kit Kat endorsement and too many other achievements to name, Chance The Rapper is set to end the year with another bang.
As previously reported, Chano is closing out SNL’s 42nd mid-season finale as the show’s guest performer, alongside host Casey Affleck. This also marks the second time Chance has stood on the stage of NBC’s famed Studio 8H at the Rockefeller Center. Third, if you count his infamous appearance with Kanye West earlier in the year.
During the evening’s sets, Chance brought out fellow Chicago rapper Noname for a performance of “Finish Line” off Coloring Book, which you can peep above and “Same Drugs” with Francis & The Lights, who eventually took over the keys, below.
