The masses have not yet forgotten about that Lifetime Aaliyah biopic. Though the network had partially salvaged its reputation with their depiction of the late Whitney Houston, the overall inaccuracies of its biopics remain a much-talked-about fail. Having some fun with Hollywood’s latest trend, Saturday Night Live have Jay Z’s life a hilarious biopic treatment.
Starring Mike O’Brien – yes, a white guy – as Hov, the comedy sketch bills itself as “the definitive, fully accurate biopic that is the final word on the subject” of Jay Z’s life. The hilarious portrayal also features appearances from a fictional Kanye West and Nas (played by host J.K. Simmons). Based on Jay Z, but not resembling Jay Z at all, the clip is a ridiculous exaggeration that drives the biopic point home.
“It’s raw. It’s gritty. It’s 100% accurate,” said no one ever.
