Saturday Night Live Spoofs Jay Z’s Rise to Success

Saturday Night Live documents Jay-Z‘s rise to fame in a hilariously inaccurate portrayal played by Mike O’Brien. The skit covers some of Jay’s most famous events in his storied career, including the moment he met his eventual wife pop-superstar Beyonce Knowles, co-signing Kanye West as a rapper, settling his feud with Nas and writing the popular “Empire State of Mind.” The spoof also features the episode’s guest host, J.K. Simmons of Law & Order.
