Jay Pharoah is one funny dude!
The former Saturday Night Live cast member added to his budding resume today (Dec. 29) with his hilarious Eminem and Jay Z impressions. But not only is the Chesapeake, Virginia native insanely funny, the kid can rap is a** off, too. The actor recently stopped by DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45’s The Whoolywood Shuffle for a Christmas special — and put his skills on front street.
For about ten minutes, Pharoah spits crazy freestyles as different artists like Eminem, J. Cole, Drake and Pusha T over numerous beats. But it was Pharaoh’s Jay Z impression and freestyle that was the most entertaining — he really sounds like Hov.
Back in August, Pharoah along with actors/comedians Taran Killam and Jon Rudnitsky were cut from the SNL cast. Killam claims that he was not given a reason for being let go, according to an interview with Variety.
Watch the freestyle above as well as a throwback of Aries Spears’ impressions of Jay Z.
