Why we're pumped to see Drake host 'SNL' -- Video

Two words, guys: Wheelchair Jimmy.

Fine, a few more words: This weekend, Saturday Night Live announced that 2014′s first show will be helmed entirely by Drake, playing the role of both host and musical guest. Pulling double duty on SNL is a big deal for any artist, but it’s especially notable for a rapper; only a handful in SNL history have done so before, including M.C. Hammer (in 1991), Queen Latifah (in 2004), and Ludacris (in 2006).

All three of these rappers have one thing in common: previous acting experience. Ludacris hosted after receiving good notice for his work in films like Crash and Hustle & Flow. »
