Jay Pharoah wants you to know that he is ‘not a yes n!gga’ folks. Hear, in the interview above, the risky career situations where he says ‘no’ to things, how he ended up leaving Saturday Night Live and more. Interesting how he affirmed that they (SNL) attempted to pigeonhole him as the Black impressionist; then he tossed that Chris Rock impression right in there within minutes (then a smidge of President Trump later).
(Did Jay say he got ‘White famous’ around the 8-minute mark though? Hahaa!)
If you missed the ESPY awards two nights ago then you probably missed this hilarious skit by comedian Jay Pharoah as he impersonates Jay Z ‘The Sports Agent’. Many people are not happy with the idea of Jay Z becoming a sports agent like rival agent Scott Boras with whom Jay Z took a shot at in a song on his new album. Those individuals wary about Jay Z entering into the sports world representing athletes may love this skit because it addresses the elephant in the room about people’s feelings on Jay Z guiding these athlete’s careers. Even Master P spoke with some caution when he recently elaborated on Jay Z’s move into the sports management business & how he may need to be fully prepared. Many of those unspoken issues were unveiled in this comedic skit by comedian Jay Pharoah at the ESPY awards that found some in the audience, who may or may not be doing business with Jay Z, not laughing at. In fact, even NY Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, who is represented by Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports, is now unhappy after the ink was dry from signing his new contract with the Giants because he realized that he was underpaid for what he was really worth. According to some sports talk radio reports his former agent allegedly stated he could have gotten him more but he chose to go with Roc Nation Sports. Big business politics aside, Jay Pharoah’s skit is hilarious. Only 1 or 2 comedians can do a great job on the Sean Carter impressions Like Aaries Spears.
