On the surface, the trappings of the hip-hop lifestyle can seem pretty appealing: There’s the fame, the money, the romantic attention, the fans, and all the expensive toys. Beneath the surface, though, everything isn’t perfect, and that’s the facet of the rap lifestyle that Donald Glover, Kenan Thompson, and Chris Redd (playing the rap trio Migos) explore in a hilarious new sketch from Saturday Night Live.
There’s also a fun bonus at the end for hip-hop heads (which the video title spoils so I don’t feel bad about mentioning it here): A$AP Rocky pops up briefly at the end, and his presence ends up affirming the breakthrough Migos made in therapy. Yes, it’s a sweet moment.
