SNL: Jay Pharoah does Drake impression to Drake

Posted on


Saturday Night Live cast member and king impressionist Jay Pharoah dusted off some of his best imitations during Saturday’s Weekend Update, including Jay Z, Will Smith, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, and DMX. But when Pharoah got to Drake, the real Drake interrupted to complain.

“First of all, I don’t sound like that, so just relax,” Drake, who was host of the episode, said.

“Yeah, bro, you do sound like that, so just relax,” Pharoah replied in perfect mimicry.


The two debated for a bit, before Drake had to acquiesce. He does, indeed, sound like that.
