Chicago's Chance the Rapper will host SNL tonight

With that, Chance decided that he was going to make a lot of money tonight performing a "Thanksgiving Song" - hey, there are no great Thanksgiving songs out there! You know, I'm a huge fan of the show and I know that when they bring guest hosts, they usually come with a few ideas at least, especially if they're into comedy, so I brought a few sketches by. Among his selection of sketches is one he worked on with Donald Glover.

He did not reference Adam Sandler's "Thanksgiving Song", which famously debuted on "Saturday Night Live" decades earlier and has seen subsequent updates to the lyrics to include more topical names and references, though.

"How about Chance Encounter?" asks Em, with Jones chiming in, "or Chance the Hottie".

In a new set of promos released by the show on Friday, Leslie Jones admits she's had some certain... dreams... about both rappers that definitely didn't involve knitting.

The trio also joke about Chance's possible name change.

Chano didn't appear to like any of the new names but Em's pick of "Chancer The Dancer" sounds like a victor. We can all relate. He talked about how there are no good Thanksgiving themed songs, so he chose to sing one about dysfunctional families.
