Closing out a massive year, Chance the Rapper took the stage tonight on Saturday Night Live for the NBC sketch comedy series' last show before its short winter hiatus.

For the Casey Affleck-hosted episode, Chance brought out fellow Chicago emcee Noname and New York trio Thirdstory to perform "Finish Line/Drown," from the Grammy-nominated mixtape Coloring Book, which is Variance's 2016 Album of the Year. 

Later in the episode, he performed "Same Drugs," joined on the piano by Francis Starlite (aka Francis and the Lights). He also appeared in a digital short parodying Run D.M.C.'s "Christmas in Hollis" to commemorate America's last Christmas with President Obama.

SNL will return on Jan. 14, with host Felicity Jones of the newly released Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and musical guest Sturgill Simpson.
