Last night, Jay-Z was in Toronto, kicking off the Legends of the Summer Tour with Justin Timberlake. You could have fooled us; we could have sworn the rapper was at the ESPY Awards.
Last night, ESPN’s annual ESPY Awards went down at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The awards show was really your usual affair. However, there was an awesome highlight.
For three plus minutes, SNL comedian Jay Pharoah did his famous Jay-Z impersonation. And, jeez, it’s perfect. Like, really, we bet Beyonce would be fooled by this dude. (He also does quite the Barack Obama.)
What also makes this video pretty funny is the fact that there are audience shots of a number of Jay-Z-friends: LeBron James, Diddy and Snoop Dogg. None look pleased, which is just… LOL.
Watch the video of Jay Pharoah killing it above.
