Holy shit, you guys. Saturday Night Live just announced its host and musical guest for the January 21 episode, and Detroit's Big Sean will take the legendary stage at Studio 8H.

Big Sean will be joined by first time host Aziz Ansari. You may remember Ansari from the beloved NBC show Parks & Recreation and his critically acclaimed show on Netflix Master of None.

This is a huge deal for the Detroit rapper as he will be releasing his newest album I Decided on February 3. Let's hope that Big Sean will have as many jokes as Chance the Rapper did when he was the musical guest last month.

Big Sean announced yesterday that he is playing a show at the Fox Theatre on April 1 as a part of his "I Decided Tour." We can't wait!
