Chance the Rapper, Eminem and Leslie Jones came forward for an SNL promo video prior to tomorrow night’s show that’s already promising to be a must see for hip hop fans. Chance the Rapper will be hosting the show whereas Eminem will be performing two tracks off of his upcoming new album Revival.
Em’s newest track to air “Walk on Water” came out to mixed reviews; the track features Beyonce but has a more melodic tone than many are used to from the lyricist emcee. Taking an introspective look at Eminem’s most recent work, the piece is self-critical, and were it not for the harder hook at the end, one might think the entire album was the same tone.
The promotional clip for tomorrow night’s much anticipated SNL show features three different segments- the first part had Leslie Jones playing a game of telephone with Eminem that left Chance the Rapper in the middle.
“Yo Chance, ask Em why he won’t battle me,” she asks. After Chance passes the message, Em simply responds, “Because she’ll win.”
Later on Eminem feigns confusion over Chance the Rapper’s name, as Eminem is the musical guest for the evening, which leads to a hilarious back and forth between him and Leslie Jones to come up with a new name for Chance. Among the better names were Chancer the Dancer, Chance the Hotty, Chance the Poet and Chance Encounter- it doesn’t appear Chance is in the market for a name change any time soon though.
Eminem is expected to perform Walk on Water in tomorrow’s SNL show, however he’ll also premier a brand new song off the project that has primarily been built off of speculation. Eminem hasn’t spoken about the project, which was expected to leak/ release today, November 17th- so far the project hasn’t seen the light of day, however with hope it’ll see the light of day next week.
