Jay Pharoah mocks Kanye West’s housepets’ egos with ‘I Am A Dog’
Saturday Night Live‘s Jay Pharoah released a parody of Kayne West’s “I Am A God” entitled “I Am A Dog.” The West song, from his recently released album Yeezus, was inspired by being denied backstage access to shows at last year’s Paris Fashion Week.
“So the next day I went to the studio with Daft Punk, and I wrote ‘I Am a God’ ’cause it’s like, Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go,” West told W Magazine. “Man, I’m the number-one living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.”
Or, in Pharoah’s words, “I’m the shitzu. I am a dog.”
