NEW YORK — Chicago’s very own Chance the Rapper made history as the first rapper not signed to a record label to host “Saturday Night Live.”

Chance had performed on SNL as a musical guest before, but it was his first time hosting the show. He joined in on several sketches, including a sports reporter who usually covers basketball that’s forced to cover hockey.

Chance also joined SNL’s Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd to form a mock ’90s R&B group called De-Von-Tré, and sang in an original song dedicated to the former president titled, “Come Back, Barack!”

The musical guest was fellow rapper Eminem, who performed his latest single “Walk on Water.”
