Jay-Z Imitated by Affion Crockett in Rocawear Ad
Comedian Affion Crockett has taken his mimicry to new heights.
After spending years imitating rappers like Lil Wayne, Drake and Kanye West, the hip-hop impressionist has now not only scored his own Jamie Foxx-produced Fox sketch comedy show, ‘In the Flow With Affion Crockett,’ he is also the star of a new ad for Rocawear, imitating the company’s owner, Jay-Z.
Appearing in the spoof of Jay’s infamous ‘D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune),’ Crockett announces the “death to other clothes,” rapping, “This is anti-other clothes/ Death to your wardrobe/ This ain’t for linen pants/ This ain’t for plush robes/ This Young Carter at the opera, fitteds on/ I get thug in ya church with my denims on.”
Crockett then segues into a send-up of French hip-hop dance duo Les Twins’ interpretive Rocawear ad, to the tune of Jay’s ‘Venus vs. Mars,’ dancing comically.
‘In the Flow with Affion Crockett’ premiered Sunday (Aug. 14), on Fox.
