Drake Admits He Dated Rihanna In ‘SNL’ Rap — Watch

Sun, January 19, 2014 12:47pm EST by 152 Comments

Drake was surprisingly game as the host and performer on ‘Saturday Night Live’ on Jan. 18, and in a rap celebrating his black and Jewish heritage, he snuck in an admission about his relationship with Rihanna!

Tell us more, Drake! As host of Saturday Night Live on Jan. 18, Drizzy rapped about the benefits of being black and Jewish, and apparently one of those benefits includes dating Rihanna!

Drake Raps About ‘Dating A Rihanna’ On ‘SNL’

In a flashback to Drake’s (or Dracob’s) bar mitzvah, the rapper’s eclectic heritage — his mom’s Jewish, his dad’s African-American — was put on display. And when DJ Mordecai Jones hit that beat, all bets were off.

Drake’s funny freestyle bar mitzvah rap included gems like, “I play ball like LeBron and I know what a W-2 is,” and “the only purple drank we sip is purple Manischewitz.” But the real bomb came towards the end when Drake rapped, “I celebrate Hanukkah, date a Rihannakah!” You know what Drake, you’re right — dating Rihanna is a huge benefit of having a mixed heritage.

Drake & Rihanna’s Relationship

Drake’s always been a little coy about his relationship with Rihanna, seemingly downplaying it as they go on dates to strip clubs. But he does give us a taste from time to time. Appearing on Ellen in Sept., she grilled him about the relationship and he mysteriously replied, “Yeah, great girl. We had our moment. Always support and have love for her.”

Though Drake and Rihanna have been spotted out partying recently, a Nov. report claimed that he’s been seeing Zoe Kravitz. But either way, you can tell from Drake’s SNL rap that he’s definitely proud of hooking up with Rihanna, and we’re sure she’ll laugh at the fact that her name was rhymed with Hanukkah.

What did you think of Drake’s SNL rap, HollywoodLifers? Watch the clip above and let us know!

He said I date a Rihannakah, that sure doesn’t sound like he’s talking about the past it sounds more like NOW he’s talking about. Drake will always be a slush when it comes to Rihanna, go listen to fireworks, Marvins Room and hold on were going home. Those songs are all about Rihanna.

Poor Zoe, she should have know better. She acted like a fool hanging all over Drake when she should have known he’ll never get over Rihanna since the whole world knows and he keeps telling us over and over again, every time he gets the chance he’s speaking of Rihanna. haha

Zoe is not poor soul here. Drake knew he still wasn’t over Riri and flaunted Zoe in her face. Drake needs a slap in the face for constantly playing games with Riri and all these other girls when clearly he’s not over her yet. No do overs my foot. He would do it over and over and over again. Don’t kid us Drake be man and say it like it is.

Here we go again? “We” didn’t say crap, Drake said it and started it all up again. If he didn’t want people talking about it then he should have kept Rihanna’s name out of his mouth. He obviously wanted people to know he’s dating Rihanna, and to smash those Zoe rumors or he wouldn’t have said anything about Rihanna. Blame Drake not anyone commenting here.

I find this funnier than shi#. He’s pictured with Zoe hanging all over him like a leech, and Rihanna gave him the dust he deserved for that and now he’s whining over her and trying to say he’s dating her. This is nothing more than Drake effed up and is trying to get off Rihanna’s naughty list! I hope she makes him squirm a little longer. LOL

If Rihanna stay w Drake, she will make the same mistake of date Chris Brown again. If I was her, I never dating again this Guys. They are a mess. They want manipulate Rihanna so bad. They make a lot of songs claim for her and when she come they call her a hoe in the twitter and in music….oh lord…they are very petty, childish and low dow. They expose Rihanna too much and of course that they use her for fame too…someone new is the better and most smart choice.

Drake’s telling everyone he’s dating Rihanna? What happen to that dirty girl that was all over him and Beyoncés concert? I mean she was being a clingy rat to him and that had to of pissed Rihanna off. I know he’s been sad looking lately and maybe they made up, but that was an effed up thing he did, so I think Rihanna should be cautious of him, but this is a good sign that it’s on again.

Her new years resolution to not put up with guys crap anymore must have woken him up. He’s now telling everyone he’s dating her cuz she’s not playing games with him anymore. It’s either treat me right or hit the road. I think he’s got the message. LOL

I don’t know Drake if we can trust you with our RiRi after your little antics lately. Hopefully that was all a misunderstanding and you’ve explained it all to RiRi and she’s forgiven you. You have a lot of sucking up to do after that, but this is a real good step, claiming her in front of the world gave you lots of points!!

That’s real power at work! So many men in luv with her, two men luv her more than others. That’s a much better deal than being one man having a thing for two wmn (!) So here’s hoping Bajan takes advantage of her time as bachelorette and fly solo for a long while yet. The one who does catch her will be one lucky man.

I don’t know if I want Rihanna dating Drake again, especially after those pictures with Zoe and Drake surfaced. That’s just messed up of Drake to do that and I know he just did it to get at Rihanna, but still so uncalled for. Maybe that got Rihanna’s attention and maybe she committed to just him, no one knows what goes on between them, but we all know Drake is crazy about her and he lets that be known. Now he’s saying he dates her (present tense) and that’s hard to ignore. Could it be that the hot football player who Rihanna named her mcm is hot for her and trying to get her to call so they can go on a date? Maybe Drake couldn’t handle that and they made up? Who knows but he did just confirm it and that’s a hard one not to believe since he said it and we all heard him say it.

@Maureen As you can see, Drake is a talented actor and rapper. He sold that performance didn’t he? See what happens when he puts the two gifts together.

Well, well, well, Drake finally let everyone know the real deal huh? Those pictures of him and Zoe were pretty incriminating though, and he looked like a sad little puppy on new years eve because Rihanna was pissed and I don’t blame her I’d be pissed also if my man was acting a fool and letting some dirty girl hang all over him. Looks like they’ve made up but only time will tell. Drake seems to think they’ve made up since he just told everyone who watches SNL that he dates a Rihannakah. I guess I have to believe him. LOL

Rihanna’s new MCM eagles player has been hollering for her to call him. It’s all over the internet. He wants to date her. Who knows what to believe. And what about that chick on tour with Drake. His song at end of SNl and being all touchy freely hugging each other. This is all too strange.

Yep, I’ve seen that Mychal Kendricks been trying to get Rihanna’s attention. He even was in New York, to bad she was still in Brazil. Maybe that’s why Drake letting it be known, cuz Mychal’s after Rihanna ever since she named him her MCM. He wants to date her and he’s a hottie so Drake’s freaking out now! hahaha

@Dreamer after 4 yrs or so, you don’t have to see each other all the time to keep a connection. I’m glad they’re keeping some things private.

The real test is next weeks Grammys. Will drake attend? Alone? Wih another girl? With Rihana. We will see. I hope they are back. I think they look cute together and he will really treat her like a queen. But he’ll hath no fury like a woman scorned and Riri might not be fond of his girl antics lately.

HL puts up a poll saying, do you think Rihanna and Drake are dating? Good grief HL Drake just told us they are, so that poll is funny. Drake just confirmed their dating and it’s not a rumor it came out of his own mouth on national TV. Hard to deny that little fact.
