Saturday Night Live kicked off its 30th year this weekend by bringing in Drake to host and perform. Drake took the stage to showcase a medley of recently released tracks, also allowing Jhené Aiko to take the stage alongside him, while comedy sketches from the night capitalized on the opportunity to poke fun at several sensitive subjects surrounding the Toronto-based rapper. Assuming the persona of his 13-year-old self, controversial MLB player Alex Rodriguez and Cash Money record-mate Lil Wayne, the night surely provided enough to talk about.
