Looks like Melissa McCarthy has been brushing up on her rap skills!

The 45-year-old Spy actress is gearing up to host Saturday Night Live for the fourth time this weekend, and in a new promo for the sketch comedy show, McCarthy pokes fun at rapper Kanye West.

In the sneak peek clip, McCarthy and SNL star Vanessa Bayer candidly converse inside a salon while getting their nails painted in "Saturday Night" and "Candy Whore" hues.

When the two start talking about their favorite West songs, diehard fan McCarthy channels her inner rapper and starts busting out a few bars to a made-up West jam called "Butterscotch Man," which she says is from his "third or 15th album."

"You, drop a beat, I'll lay it down," McCarthy says, before rapping, "Butterscotch man, tater-tot yam, put it in my ham (ham!), butterscotch man."

As McCarthy puts it, we think she totally "nailed it."

The dig is fitting, as West will be the night's musical guest on the new episode airing Saturday on NBC, just two days after the release of his newest album. This will mark his sixth SNL performance.

As we patiently wait to see what McCarthy will bring to the stage this time around, watch the video below to re-live some of the highlights from Ryan Gosling's SNL debut last December.
