In case you missed it, Questlove slapped Pete Davidson upside the head in a hilarious sketch that aired on SNL Saturday.
In the sketch, Davidson and host Timothée Chalamet played Soundcloud rappers named Guaplord and Smokecheddathaassgetta (and obviously parodying rappers like Tekashi 6ix9ine and Lil’ Xan) who appear on an XXL Rap Roundtable hosted by Ego Nwodim Nwodim as Nunya Bizness, along with Questlove and Punkie Johnson playing Queen Latifah, to discuss the year in hip-hop.
Davidson and Chalamet’s characters draw the stink eye from the panel, answering Nwodim’s questions with a series of “yeets” and “skrrts”, and citing their influences as The Fall Out Boys and an advert featuring rapping hamsters. During the faux serious discussion about rap music today — “Hip-hop is about the lyrical tradition of America,” Questlove says — the duo clash with the established artists and overtake the conversation with proclamations of “the ye” and their complete ignorance about the history of hip-hop.
When the pair perform a remix to one of their songs, Questlove jumps from his chair and slaps Davidson’s character yelling, “No! You don’t sing like that on a rap record.”
Questlove then slaps Chalamet. “Dumbass, pissing me off.”
