What would a Hollywood film based on Jay Z’s life look like?
According to “Saturday Night Live,” it would probably star a bunch of white guys portraying famous black rappers.
“SNL” mocked this sad fact in a hilarious sketch, “The Jay Z Story.” The sketch stars a very polite Mike O’Brien as Shawn Carter, aka Jay Z.
“SNL” alum Jason Sudeikis plays a young Kanye West, deep cut V-neck and all. Sasheer Zamata plays the Destiny’s Child leader Beyonce, while host J.K. Simmons portrays Nas. Jay Pharoah also gives his spot-on Jay Z impression, but gets totally shunned by O’Brien.
