Chance the Rapper Channels Run-DMC on ‘SNL’ to Celebrate President Obama’s Last Christmas in White House

A festive ode to the POTUS. Chance the Rapper and Kenan Thompson channeled Run-DMC to celebrate President Barack Obama‘s last Christmas in the White House during a hilarious Saturday Night Live sketch on Saturday, December 17.

With some inspiration from Run-DMC’s classic “Christmas in Hollis,” the duo brought out all the bells and whistles for a performance of “Jingle Barack,” a final farewell to the outgoing commander in chief before President-elect Donald Trump‘s January inauguration.

“We still got Barack / So you know what that means / We shooting some hoops in high-waist jeans,” Chance, 23, and Thompson, 38, rapped. “So, ’tis the season / Let’s spread some cheer / It’s the last Christmas with Barack still here.”

“This year I bought four Christmas trees / Stockpiled all the Home Alone DVDs,” Chance, who was the musical guest of the evening, continued. “I got batteries, canned food, everything I need / There will probably never be another Christmas Eve / Binge-drinking eggnog like I don’t care / Imma hurt myself before we lose Obamacare / Say goodbye to Barack / Say goodbye to December / Before a new holiday called ‘Regular Winter.'”

The skit ended with a clip of Obama, 55, dropping the mic at his final White House Correspondents’ Dinner earlier this year.

Chance and the president have a long history. The rapper’s father, Ken Bennett, once worked for then-Senator Obama before his current gig as deputy chief of staff to Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. More recently, in April, Chance visited the White House to meet with Obama to address the My Brother’s Keeper Challenge initiative. He also performed at the final White House tree-lighting ceremony earlier this month.
