When the comedians impersonating you start to do a better job of the thing you got famous for doing, it might be time to hang ‘em up. You listening, Lil Wayne?
Appearing on SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning, Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah turned in a very funny, very accurate and also very NSFW (if bad language is frowned upon where you work) impression of everyone’s least favorite sizzurp hound, Lil Wayne.
In character, Pharoah dropped a verse about sticking his dick into a wasp’s nest and then making gumbo. It sounded like a true freestyle and not a pre-written bit, because Pharoah stuttered a bit in spots. And, frankly, it was better than anything we’ve heard from the real Weezy — freestyle or not — in quite a while.

Pretty strong. But in the annals of rapper impressions, this can’t touch the legendary video of Aries Spears’ (MADtv) medley of Snoop Dogg, DMX, LL Cool J and Jay-Z. Spears absolutely crushed all four impressions in rapid succession. Nothing will ever touch that one.
