This may be a debate that will never end. Who has the better Jay Z impression amongst comedian? As a recent guest on The Big Shaq Podcast; Aries Spears ended up calling in to talk about his relationship with O’neal and his impressions. At one point when discussing Jay Pharoah; Aries went to express that Jay is great at what he does but can’t beat him on the lyrical side of impersonating rappers like Jay-Z, or DMX. Here’s what Spears went to say.
A lot of people think I have beef with Jay (Pharoah) …. I got a lot of love for Jay because he does a lot of impressions that I wish I could do… and hands down he’s one of the coldest in the game but to answer your question…. The thing that’s the the difference between us is this …. Can you really spit bars? When I do it, the rhymes you hear me say are the rhymes I actually wrote… In lyrics, Nah he can’t touch me
