When asked about their friendship, Foxx revealed that he often asks Jay to impersonate various people.

“I know I’m hard to hang out with because he’s so good at doing impressions, so that’s all I do,” said Foxx. “Just all night, like ‘what’s up with JAY-Z man, where JAY-Z at?'”

Pharoah immediately launched into his impression of JAY-Z, complete with the Brooklyn rapper’s trademark laugh.
