Jay Pharoah's 'I Am a Dog' Kanye West Spoof Is the 'Shih Tzu,' Har Har

'SNL' player does a dead-on Yeezus in "I Am a God" parody

Dan Reilly

SNL impression master Jay Pharaoh has created a canine-centric spoof of Kanye West's "I Am a God" called — what else — "I Am a Dog." Doing a dead-on impression of the Yeezus mastermind, with the stark visuals inspired by the "Black Skinhead" video, the comedian raps such priceless lines as "Hurry up let me out the garage / Hurry up give my balls a massage / Fore I start barking like Nicki Minaj."

We won't spoil all the jokes but let's just say this dog-ye — who declares himself "the Shih Tzu" — has a bit of Mississippi leg hound in him. Kanye has yet to respond to the video, but having seen parts of his unaired HBO pilot, it's safe to say he should avoid any attempt at comedic retribution. Pharoah, of course, has previously parodied Lil Wayne and Trinidad James with varying results.
