In a hilarious skit on “Saturday Night Live,” the rapper plays an NBA sideline reporter, Laslo Holmes, pressed into duty as a rinkside reporter for a game between the New York Rangers and the Edmonton Oilers.

“It’s very cold all around here,” Chance The Rapper said during Saturday night’s skit. “Lots of fun hockey going on. Lots of white dudes on skates running into each other full speed. I don’t get it.”
