‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Chance The Rapper Charms His Way Through The Season’s Best

He might even thrive without it, which is a fascinating reality to accept.

In fact, Chance The Rapper showed signs in this episode of being the next Justin Timberlake for “Saturday Night Live” in terms of his versatility, gameness, and general sense of humor as a host.

That statement might seem a little confrontational but the fact remains that every person that has ever been accused
