H-O-V takes S-N-L.

“Saturday Night Live” kicked off its 43rd season with some help from host Ryan Gosling and musical guest JAY-Z. In his first televised performance this year, the hip-hop icon delivered two songs, “Bam” and “4:44,” off his chart-topping album 4:44.

Rocking Colin Kaepernick’s “7” jersey, Hov was joined by reggae legend Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley for a electrifying performance of their reggae-inspired banger “Bam.” Against the red lights and camouflage backdrop, Hov blessed the No I.D. beat, while Damian repped for his native Jamaica as a Lion of Judah flag waved across the stage.
