On a budget of $4.5 million, Jordan Peele’s debut feature Get Out has grossed more than $250 million worldwide—making it one of 2017’s most buzzed-about releases. When Drake hosted last night’s NBA Awards, the rapper paid tribute to the race-relations thriller with a hilarious sketch.
Drake plays Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry as the skit’s protagonist. He tries to leave the house to celebrate with some friends, but a fictional version of his wife stops him to enforce creepy, draconian rules.
Drake also appeared in a funny sketch featuring Will Ferrell—in which the duo starred as NBA “handshake specialists.”
