Saturday Night Live Review: Drake Hits It Out Of The Park

Drake played a steroid-use-denying Alex Rodriguez during the show's cold open (complete with the obligatory A-Rod lip-licking), then went on to apologize for coining the term YOLO, before poking fun at his bi-racial heritage in a flashback to his Bar Mitzvah. PHOTOS: 'Saturday Night Live' - Scenes & Stars (The rapper has a white Jewish mom more info and a black father.) In the hilarious sketch, a 13-year-old Drake, still going by his birth name, Aubrey Graham, took the Bar Mitzvah stage to perform a rap to the tune of "Hava Nagila" that incorporated stereotypes from both sides of his family. VOTE: How did Drake do as 'SNL' host? "Please don't forget I'm black, please don't forget I'm Jewish - I play ball like LeBron and I know what a W-2 is," he rapped. "Chillin' in Boca Raton with my mensch, Lenny Kravitz - the only purple drank we sip is purple Manischewitz," he continued, referencing the sweet table wine typically served during Jewish holiday celebrations (Lenny has a black mother and Jewish father). Other highlights of the episode - which marked new cast member Sasheer Zamata's first time on the show - included Drake's impression of Jay Z, Katt Williams, and Lil Wayne as Steve Urkel. For his musical numbers, Drake performed "Started at The Bottom" and "Hold On We're Going Home," paired with "From Time" featuring Jhene Aiko.
