| January 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

The first Saturday Night Live of 2014 opened with rapper Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham hosting and performing on the show. He opened the show with a brief introduction revealing facts you may or may not know about him: he starred on teen drama television show “Degrassi,” his mother is Jewish and his father is African American, and he coined the phrase Y.O.L.O (You Only Live Once), which he apologized for people in the workplace who over-use the phrase.

He takes us back to 1999, when both sides of his family first met at his Bar Mitzvah: Drake Bar Mitzvah Monologue, where he even jokes about his name being “Drakeob”. Drake also does a Nancy Grace spoof about the legalization of marijuana playing Katt Williams as an advocate stating “I’m from Atlanta, but if weed is going to be legal up here in Colorado then consider me forever Rocky Mountain high.”

Other spoofs include Before They Were Stars (playing Lil Wayne as Steve Urkle on Family Matters) and Alex Rodriguez (Yankee slugger on a 162 game suspension for the use of steroids). Viewers were also able to watch as he performed his latest songs “Started From The Bottom,” and “Trophies.”
