Comedian Jay Pharoah has a ton of celebrity impressions in his bag of tricks, so when he and Jamie Foxx stopped by Ellen to promote their new series White Famous, it’s no surprise that Pharoah did some of his best impressions, including JAY-Z and Kanye West.

Playing Ellen DeGeneres’ Impressions Game, Pharoah started off with his famous Barack Obama impression that he perfected during his time on Saturday Night Live. After a decent Pharrell impersonation, the comedian then acted out JAY-Z selling Girl Scout cookies. “I mean, yo, buy the damn cookies,” Pharoah said in a voice just like Hov’s.

The former SNL star’s final impression was Kanye West purchasing a used car. As Foxx and Pharoah both tried their hand at ‘Ye’s voice, Pharoah proceeded to steal the show, doing a signature Kanye rant. “Hold on, fam! What we not gon’ do, is, you know, you ain’t gon’ put me in no Ford Focus.”

Speaking with XXL, Pharoah discussed his impressions and revealed the celebrities he impersonates love them. “Never heard any negativity. Kanye did call me a couple of years ago,” he said. “But it wasn’t like, ‘I hate this dude, stop doing your impression,’ it was more of him talking about himself for 12 minutes. Which sounds so Kanye, but yeah. All the rappers that I encounter it’s never, ‘Oh, don’t do me,’ or whatever, it’s all been love. Jay Z loves it. Snoop asked me if I could impersonate him.”
