In a new digital series with MSNBC and NBC News THINK, “Mavericks with Ari Melber” takes viewers out of the newsroom and into the world of culture, passion and independence with some of the biggest names from music, film, television and more. Mavericks builds off the success of Ari Melber’s #FallBackFriday segments on MSNBC’s “The Beat,” in which celebrities, politicians and more come together to decide who needs to “fall back” each week. In the second episode, Ari Melber interviews SNL’s Chris Redd about working with Donald Glover, Lorne Michaels, Lil Wayne and others, how giving up on his dream to be a rapper paved the way to his SNL audition, and why he thinks comedy can be a force for social change. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
