SNL’s Jay Pharoah Delivers the Defining Lil Wayne Parody of Our Time

You probably knew Jay Pharoah has a hyper-convincing Jay-Z impression in his arsenal, but this is the best Lil Wayne parody since Weezy's unintentional self-parody dropped a few months ago. Pharoah sounds identical to Wayne at some points, not so much like him at others, but the content is just so surgically on point — the only reason Lil Wayne hasn't rapped about boning a beehive and making wasp gumbo is 'cause he didn't think of it. Slightly NSFW. (W for work and for Weezy ... seriously, no one tweet this at him. He won't be happy.)
