This week’s episode of Saturday Night Live is being termed as the “blackest” episode to date.
Featuring Drake as both the host and musical guest, the January 18 installment marked the debut of Sasheer Zamata, the first black female cast member since Maya Rudolph.

Have a look at two of the funniest SNL sketches featuring Drake and other cast members.
Sasheer Zamata Debuts And Drake Performs On His Bar Mitzvah:
Drake opened the show with his Bar Mitzvah, cracked jokes about growing up with a Jewish mother (Zamata) and a black father. He also made references to his former television series "Degrassi.”
Watch the complete segment in the video above.
Nancy Grace And Marijuana Claims:
Earlier this month, television host Nancy Grace spoke to CNN's Brooke Baldwin about the legalization of pot in Colorado.
Grace stated that she didn’t agree with the law, telling Baldwin she thinks that legalizing marijuana for recreational use is a "horrible idea” and that she would never let a babysitter high on pot near her kids or sit with a cab driver who had smoked weed.
She added anyone who disagreed with her was "lethargic, sitting on the sofa, eating chips ... fat and lazy."
In an attempt to analyze how exactly weed could corrupt American youth, a frantic Grace, played by Noël Wells, invited comedian Katt Williams, played by Drake, one her show.
