Drake Apologizes for ‘YOLO,’ Recreates Bar Mitzvah in ‘SNL’ Monologue [VIDEO]

Host and musical guest Drake gave the ‘SNL’ viewing audience a serious lesson in his history during his opening monologue on Jan. 18, going so far as to recreate his Bar Mitzvah with an assist from new cast member Sasheer Zamata as his new Aunt Rhonda.

He revealed that he is not only Canadian, but that his real name is Aubrey and that he is responsible for the creation of the now ubiquitous term “YOLO” aka “You Only Live Once,” apologizing for your obnoxious friends and coworkers overusing it. He also confessed that growing up both black and Jewish made for a very interesting Bar Mitzvah back in 1999.

Cultures collided in this flashback sketch, in which Drakob, as he called himself, delivered a rap to celebrate the fact he was becoming a man. In the rap, Drizzy referenced Lenny Kravitz, LeBron James, Manischewitz, Yeezy and Weezy and dating “Rihannica,” since that rhymed with Hanukkah.

Zamata, who was hired after the show was criticized for its lack of black female cast members, was certainly memorable in her debut, where she also played Rihanna in one sketch and the daughter to Drizzy’s nerdy dad in another.
