Posted Sunday December 22, 2013 12:52 PM GMT

He's got a long time to prepare with the holiday break, but later in January, Drake will pull double duty as host and musical guest on "Saturday Night Live."

After performing on the show in 2011, the "Started From the Bottom" rapper makes his return in a big way.

Coming off of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake's Christmas episode on December 21st, Drake will take the stage with the rest of the cast on January 18th.

Though it's his first time hosting "SNL," Drake is no stranger to the small screen - having acted in the Canadian TV show, "Degrassi: The Next Generation" as a teenager.
