Aries Spears vs. Jay Pharoah – Who Does Rap Impersonations Better? [Video]

Stop the presses! There’s a possible rap impersonation battle a-brewing between comedians Aries Spears and Jay Pharoah. Both funnymen are known for their dead-on impersonations of famous rappers. However, Spears thinks he does his way better than Pharoah.

Spears, who can do dead-on impersonations of Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg, debuted his impression of the late Notorious B.I.G on Hot 97’s video channel.

Over the instrumental of Pharoahe Monch’s ‘Simon Says,’ Spears does a freestyle in the same cadence and lyrical flow as the great Big Poppa. It’s truly impressive.

“Spit game is vicious / Malicious / How I roll through you like a cancer / Doc speak bleak, talk about your chances,” he raps, adding, “Chris keeps it real, keeps it Frank, like Sinatra.”

Meanwhile, ‘Saturday Night Live’ regular Jay Pharoah appeared on Shade 45’s ‘Sway in the Morning’ to spit his freestyle in the manner of rapper Lil Wayne. Now the Virginia native is known for his on-point impressions of Denzel Washington and Will Smith, so how is his Weezy impression?

Not bad.

“I’ll make a song about anything,” raps Pharoah in Tunechi’s southern drawl before launching into a hilarious NSFW verse about having intercourse with beehives, bitches and money, among other things.

“Bumblebees bumblin’ / They stumblin’ in my tumble / Mix them bitches up I call it wasp, wasp gumbo,” he raps.
