Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Guest host Chance the Rapper kicked off this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live with a song about Thanksgiving and how to deal with irksome family members.

The artist later appeared in a comedy sketch in which several African Americans who live near Gotham's Wayne Manor complain about how Batman spends too much time in their neighborhood. He followed that up with a parody of the game show Family Feud where he portrays the long-lost son host Steve Harvey never knew he had.

Chance the Rapper also teamed up with SNL players Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd for the 1990s-style music video "Come Back, Barack." The clip showed the trio singing a ballad about how much they miss having U.S. President Barack Obama in the White House, even though they understand he is enjoying his well-earned retirement.
