The Popdust Files: jay-z, lil wayne, parodies, videos

Lil Wayne has taken it on the chin a little recently for some life and career decisions he’s made—most of them fashion or skateboard-related. (Kevin Hart’s scribbled-down note of “Lil Wayne—stop skateboarding…you black” at the 2011 VMAs probably started the trend.) Comedian Affion Crockett has decided to take the ribbing a step further on his upcoming comedy album Watch the Clone, even rapping and dressing up like both Jay-Z and Weezy himself in the video for “WTF?” (as in “What the fuck is he wearing?”) to do so. Jay-Z is up first, making fun of Wayne for his ridiculous spandex pants and poor boarding skills. Then Wayne comes up and…basically makes fun of himself for the same things. Is Jay so unassailable? We guess so.

Turns out, it’s a lot easier to capture the voice and spirit of Jay-Z than Lil Wayne. Crockett’s Jiggaman is basically Jay Pharoah worthy—set him against the lights from the “Jigga What, Jigga Who?” video and you’re already halfway there—but the Weezy just seems…off. That high-pitched, super-chill-even-whilst-incensed tone of Wayne’s voice just isn’t quite so replicable. Not by human, anyway.
