Hang on to your skeletons. Chance the Rapper is headed to Saturday Night Live October 26 for a pre-Halloween show that’ll rattle your bones. This time around, the Chicago rapper will be both hosting and performing. After SNL announced his dual appearance Saturday, Chance took to Instagram to praise Lorne Michaels, declaring double duty his “life long goal” and pronouncing himself the 27th person to ever simultaneously serve as the show’s host and musical guest. Chance previously accomplished his other life goals by performing on SNL in December 2016, and hosting in November 2017, in addition to stopping by to join Kanye West on “Ultralight Beam” last October. “Thank you Donald Glover and Drake who came before me and McHammer who helped me realize this dream as a child!!,” he enthused. “Thank you Lorne and everyone at 8H!! Prepare for the show of a lifetime.”
