It's official: Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah has redeemed himself for that weak Trinidad James spoof a couple of months back. On a recent visit to Sway in the Morning, which airs on Eminem's Sirius XM station Shade 45, the comedian expertly freestyled his way through a living Lil Wayne parody. Going in over Weezy's Drake collab "She Will," Pharoah first warns, "I'll make a song about anything," shouts out Mountain Dew, and then kicks off his verse with, "I put my dick up in a wasps' nest." Replete with indecipherable sexual references, names of basketball players (word to CP3), and copious "ahems," the improvised rhyme is just about pitch-perfect. It's also a sore reminder of the ways in which Wayne's played himself out of late, as witnessed on his latest album, I Am Not a Human Being II.
