Chance the Rapper is slated to host and perform on Saturday Night Live later this month.
SNL made the announcement during last night’s show, saying Chance will appear on the Oct. 26 episode.
The hip-hop star currently serves as a judge on the Netflix competition series Rhythm + Flow, along with Cardi B and Tip “T.I.” Harris. He released his album, The Big Day, in July.
Chance noted on Instagram he’s just the 27th person in 45 seasons to pull double duty by hosting and serving as musical guest.
