Lil Wayne is gearing as much as grace our tv screens as the rapper shall be becoming a member of host Liev Schreiber on Saturday Night Live because the official musical visitor tonight (Nov. 10). It’s been eight years since Weezy final took the Saturday Night Live stage as a performer, and followers are eagerly anticipating his upcoming return.
Lil Wayne has been on fairly the comeback since dropping his long-awaited Tha Carter V again in September. The album debuted at No.1 on the Streets Talkin 200, headlined the Austin City Limits Festival and tops the invoice on the upcoming Rolling Loud Los Angeles. Last month, he acquired the “I Am Hip Hop” Award on the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, and he’s been tapped to seem on the Creed II soundtrack together with Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Rick Ross. As the third rapper to carry out on this season of SNL behind Kanye West and Travis Scott, Lil Wayne shall be holding it down for hip-hop as he continues his well-deserved ascent again to the highest.
In the teaser to Saturday night time’s episode, Lil Wayne gave a glimpse at his comedic facet as he engaged in some humorous dialogue with host Liev Schreiber and solid member Kate McKinnon. Weezy first threatened to stroll out on the present if there wasn’t a Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again sketch and gave a hilarious, spot-on impression of Schreiber’s imply mug.
Hopefully we get to see Wayne present extra of his comedic chops with appearances in some skits. Here are the 5 issues we wish to see from Lil Wayne on Saturday Night Live.
Bring out Drake and Nicki Minaj for a Young Money Reunion
2018 was an enormous 12 months for the Young Money trinity. Drake kicked issues off along with his Hot 100 chart-toppers “God’s Plan” and “Nice for What” previous the discharge of his record-breaking Scorpion album, and Nicki dropped her highly-anticipated Queen together with a number of collaborations with Ariana Grande, 6ix9ine and extra.
The two have come a good distance from their days within the Young Money camp and Wayne couldn’t be happier with their profitable careers. It can be a welcoming sight to see them collectively because it’s been a while since all three rappers carried out on the identical stage. It's a stretch since Drake is scheduled to carry out tonight alongside Migos on tour in St. Louis, however possibly Wayne can pull some strings to make this second occur.
Impersonate Drake in a Skit
Back in 2014 when Drake took on double obligation as host and musical visitor on SNL, he hilariously impersonated Lil Wayne within the Hip-Hop Classics: Before They Were Stars skit. Drake was spot on from Weezy’s mannerisms to his trademark voice. An SNL skit impersonating Drake — possibly recreating an episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation — can be one of the best ways for Wayne to get some payback at Aubrey’s expense.
Bring out Swizz Beatz, Shiggy and Waffle Crew to Perform “Uproar”
Since the SNL studio is situated in New York City, it’s solely proper for Lil Wayne to carry out hometown heroes Swizz Beatz, Shiggy and the Waffle Crew if he performs “Uproar” tonight. Swizz Beatz sampled “Special Delivery” by G. Dep, which took town by storm 17 years in the past, to create the fiery beat for his or her collaboration.
Shiggy and the Waffle Crew have been holding the legacy of the Get Lite motion and Harlem shaking alive with their respective comical Instagram movies. If Swizz and Shiggy joined Wayne on stage as hype males together with KidtheWiz and the Waffle Crew, it will be an acceptable, appreciative throw to NYC's hip-hop historical past.
Play Sam Carmichael or Sky in Mamma Mia Skit
Despite how humorous the teaser clip was, nobody would count on Lil Wayne to be a fan of the Ol Parker-directed Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. Since he jokingly stated he’d stroll out if there was no skit, the writers at SNL have a golden alternative to create a phase that revolves across the movie and Wayne strolling out in an Abba-fueled huff.
Bring out Kendrick Lamar for “Mona Lisa”
The final time Lil Wayne carried out on SNL, he introduced out Eminem to dish out an exhilarating efficiency of “No Love.” With a band in tow, the 2 lyricists tore the stage down with the menacing Just Blaze-produced heater. On Tha Carter V, Lil Wayne and Lamar inform a narrative of deceit and lust that makes “Mona Lisa” among the finest tracks off Wayne’s twelfth studio album.
Weezy has the potential to tear the SNL stage down with an electrifying shock with some assist from Okay Dot. SNL has a historical past of rappers delivering visually pleasing performances — suppose West's “Black Skinhead” in 2013 — and Travis Scott with “Sicko Mode.” With the lyrical content material and ominous manufacturing, Wayne has a possibility to do precisely that and blow viewers away with an explosive return.
