In one particular short titled “Drake’s Beef,” the 29-year-old rapper tries to connect with the cast – and even Lorne Michaels – throughout the week, but gets mad over some #firstworldproblems and breaks into raps about them.

For example, Aidy Bryant takes a seat next to him, moving his hat out of the way, after asking if anyone was using the chair.

He raps, “Actually I was, you b-tch / it was for my hat / but you took it from me / now we’re never going back/ I can never trust you / because you’re rude to my hat / if Josh Gad was here / he would have made me laugh.”
