Jay Z Had the Perfect Reaction to Meeting His SNL Impersonator

by Gabby Bess
Jay Z is a man of very few, yet poignant words. His "You crazy for this one!" throwaway ad-lib on 2003's "99 Problems" still rings in my ears to this day. So naturally, when Jay Z finally met his SNL impersonator, Jay Pharaoh, at the SNL40 after-party, he handled it with the cool nonchalance of an album shout-out, paired with his patented laugh: "At the after-party," Pharaoh told PageSix, "Jay Z came up to me and said, 'What up, fake Jay Z, hahaha,' and he just walked off."   

"Hahaha" -- Jay Z. Truer words have never been spoken.
