Before becoming a world-famous rapper, Drake starred as wheelchair-ridden Jimmy Brooks on the Canadian teen series Degrassi. The 27-year-old has clearly moved on from his days on the small screen, but this weekend he’ll make a brief return to host Saturday Night Live.
In his promos for the live show, Drake poked fun at himself for starring on the “soap opera,” and even showed off his acting chops. He’s joined by Bobby Moynihan and Jay Pharoah, who both try to impress the rapper by talking about “dropping beats.”
This will be Drake’s first time hosting the show, although he’s already served as a musical guest back in October 2011. Check out the promos here:
