Yes, you read that correctly…
NBC announced Friday that Dave Chappelle will be hosting SNL on November 12. It will be the first show following the Presidential election, and Chappelle’s first time hosting SNL.
Musical guest will be A Tribe Called Quest, who are releasing their first and last album in 18 years. We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service comes out November 11, and is the last to feature Phife Dawg, a founding member of the group who died this past March.
Between Chappelle and Tribe, it’s going to be quite the night for nostalgia. Chappelle will definitely have some interesting things to say regarding the election, however the results turn out.
At a recent Roots Picnic festival in New York City, Chappelle said this election features “Hillary Clinton and white Malcolm X,” calling Trump a “crazy carrot-top head motherf******,” who is “gonna kill us all and lower our taxes.”
Let’s hope he brings some of his old Chappelle’s Show characters back– Prince, perhaps?
