Jay Pharoah Does Kanye West Better Than Kanye West Does Kanye West

According to Splitsider, this was posted to YouTube by Lorne Michaels’ production company’s YouTube channel, prompting them to wonder why this, a parody of Kanye West’s “I am a God,” just wasn’t aired on SNL? Could it be because Lorne Michaels doesn’t know what’s funny anymore? (This is something I’ve been arguing with friends for a while.) Possibly, because this is damn funny.

Pharoah, arguably the best impressionist going these days, nails the hell out of Kanye. The impression is about as good as I can imagine anyone doing, to the point where parts of it actually sound like Kanye doing a parody of himself. So with that said…enjoy!
