Chance The Rapper opened his “SNL” monologue by talking about how there are no good Thanksgiving songs. He then proceeded to sing one about how everyone’s family is dysfunctional. See the video below of Chance The Rapper’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.

This marks Chance The Rapper’s debut as the host of the sketch comedy series and the third time he’s been on “SNL.” He previously was the musical guest in December 2015 when Chris Hemsworth was the host. During that appearance, he sang “Sunday Candy” and debuted the song “Somewhere In Paradise.”

Chance The Rapper returned to “Saturday Night Live” the very next year when Casey Affleck hosted and asked his fans to choose the two songs they wanted him to sing. As a result, he first performed “Finished Line” and then “Same Drugs.” The rapper said at the time that he wanted to perform every song from his album Coloring Book on TV at least once.

And even though he was the musical guest twice before, he did show his comedic chops in two sketches last year. In one skit about a stage production called “Silent Night: Hilarious Night,” Chance The Rapper had a cameo in a Christmas show that made fun of the nativity or birth of Christ. For that bit, the singer played all three Wise Men, with the help of two conjoined mannequins.

In another taped skit during that same episode, Chance The Rapper and Kenan Thompson did a rap video called “Jingle Barack” about the last Christmas with President Obama before Donald Trump was to move into the White House. Among the lyrics Chance The Rapper sang while wearing a sling was, “Drinking eggnog like I don’t care, I’m gonna hurt myself before we lose ‘Obamacare.’”

Check out the video below of Chance The Rapper’s “SNL” monologue in which he sang a new Thanksgiving song.
