If you recall, Jay’s had a long history with SNL.

Making his debut in 2000 (Lucy Liu was the host), he performed “I Just Wanna Luv U” and “Is That Your Chick.” But, let’s be real, what we remember most from that night was the “Murder in the Make-Believe Ballroom” skit he did with Will Ferrell… as Robert Goulet.

Two years later, Blueprint 2 was about to drop, so Hov went with the one-two punch of “Guns N Roses” with Lenny Kravitz and “03 Bonnie & Clyde” with Beyonce.

Eight years after that, the Brooklyn rapper was more than ready and hit em with a medley of “PSA,” “On to the Next One,” “99 Problems” and “Empire State of Mind.” He closed out the show with “Young Forever,” dedicating it to “the most incredible Betty White.”
