Jonah Hill Raps With Future On SNL
What a time to be alive for actor Jonah Hill who hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Sketches on this episode poked fun at high school wrestlers, alien encounters, the comedian feud between Katt Williams and Kevin Hart, and the latest political events involving the presidential candidates from the Republican and Democratic parties. Future finished the show, performing “Low Life” with The Weekend and his popular song “March Madness.”
This was Jonah’s forth time hosting the long running comedy sketch show. His first ‘SNL’ guest host appearance came in 2008. This time he made it an episode to remember after quickly mentioning how his year went and dismissing a “medium fan.” When it came time to introduce the musical guest, Jonah took it a step further and decided to join Future on stage, instead of doing his monologue. When he realized he introduced Drake who was not there to perform, Jonah volunteered taking his place just this one time, blocking Jay Pharaoh from taking the opportunity.
With as much rapper swag he could conjure up at the time, Jonah performed Drake’s part of the song “Jumpman” from Future’s and Drake’s joint album, ‘What A Time To Be Alive’. If he were to make the career switch from actor to rapper, the time to do it would be now. Jonah seemed to have all the right words and moves, suggesting that he’s been preparing for this moment for a while now. I wonder if Drake feels threatened by the competition. Could there be a Future and Jonah Hill collaboration in the works? A record deal maybe? I highly doubt it, but he executed his performance flawlessly, and it became the highlight of the show as you can see. There is no doubt that there is a fifth SNL hosting gig in line for Jonah in the future.
