This Sunday, Saturday Night Live celebrated 40 years on air. To culminate four decades of late night laughs, NBC put on a three-hour, star-studded super episode featuring both cast members past and present and brand new live performances. While most of the hip-hop community was focused on the 2015 NBA All-Star Game, these rappers took time to take notice of the comedic history.

Some rappers were in attendance for the live show.

If you missed the live broadcast, you probably should've asked your friends to hold you down like Mac Miller did.
