Jay Pharoah Is the Rapper Impressionist We Deserve, and the Rapper Impressionist We Need Right Now

We were first treated to Jay Pharoah’s sublime impressions on SNL earlier this year when he tackled the likes of famous black comedians, and now he’s made a triumphant return to Weekend Update to try his hand at famous rappers, too. Pharoah was “invited” to a secret rapper’s meeting at Diddy’s above-ground submarine to discuss the implications of Beyoncé’s Lemonade, and he sure can’t wait to recount the whole experience. Who was there, you ask? Jay Z, T.I., Lil Wayne, 50 Cent … and a whole lot more. Please, SNL, make this a recurring bit.
