Drake Works at Kinkos in Unseen 'Saturday Night Live' Skit: Watch

Imagining any world famous, globetrotting hip-hop star as an everyday Joe might seem earth-shattering, but that's exactly what happened to Drake when he hosted Saturday Night Live last month.  

In a skit that was cut, Drake plays a curly haired and friendly dude named Derek who gets a job at a local Kinkos. He meets his new coworkers, played by Beck Bennett and Bobby Moynihan, but can't seem to mesh with them and their "pre-established banter." Watch the clip above. 

The rest of Drizzy's dual host and musical guest spot on SNL—as in the stuff that actually made it to air—was pretty great: He performed Views standouts "Hype" and "One Dance" while strutting around in an ultraviolet box, and also had a war of words with SNL cast members.

And it hasn't just been SNL that's been allowing Drake to dominate a fair bit of conversation: Views, which released April 29, maintained the No. 1 position on the Billboard 200 album chart for six consecutive weeks, setting the record earlier this month for longest reigning No. 1 album by a male artist.
