Drake hits the Saturday Night Live stage this weekend and the rapper couldn't help but poke fun at his Degrassi days.

With the help of Bobby Moynihan, Drake (born Aubrey Graham) shows off his Canadian soap opera acting skills. Set to cheesy, dramatic music, Drake acts his way through a breakup scene where he declares himself "the saddest boy in all of Canada." Drake's No. 1 fan? Moynihan, who finds himself tearing up at the touching moment.

Other promos touch on Drake's hip-hop prowess, Jay Pharoah's inability to contain himself and a running gag between Moynihan and Pharoah "mixing beats," culminating in the two SNL cast members impressively saying their lines in unison.

Watch the preview below.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
