New York, NY – Soulja Boy’s interview on The Breakfast Club earlier this month is the gift that keeps on giving. On Saturday night (January 26), Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Redd threw on a Gucci headband and delivered his best Young Drako impression for the Weekend Update segment.

During the skit, “Soulja” promised he was running for president in 2020 with his “Crank That” campaign. When Weekend Update co-host Michael Che brings Donald Trump into the equation, Redd’s Soulja Boy character says, “Trump!? Trump?!,” a nod to Soulja’s original interview.
Twitter reactions started pouring in almost instantly and it’s pretty clear people were impressed with Redd’s impression.
Check some of them out below.

When they said Soulja Boy was coming out I had a brief moment of panic bc I thought they ACTUALLY had him come in?
Chris Redd killed it though!! #SNL
