Kanye West Rants About Jay Pharoah's VMA impersonation -- Called Jay Right After The MTV Awards!! Watch Kanye's Performance At 'Made In America' Festival



His wife Kim Kardashian was forced to sit through SNL comic Jay Pharoah's impersonation of him during the recent MTV Video Music Awards.

But Kanye West did not exactly see the funny side.

In fact, the 37-year-old has revealed he went so far as to phone the 26-year-old following his performance on August 24, which also saw him do an impression of Jay-Z.

'I called Jay Pharoah right after the MTV awards,' Kim Kardashian’s husband told the audience while on stage at the Made In America festival in Philadelphia on Saturday night.




'I said, "I appreciate your show, but let me tell you about my story. Let me tell you about what I went through to get to that position," he recalled.



'So we ain't gonna have no black comedians going onstage spoofing the people that's working hard, and helping the next man out.'

Kanye seemed to take exception to the fact, that in his view, Pharoah was making fun of his work ethic.

'It's fine and all funny and everything, but don't distract from our vision,' he said. 

'It's not a joke what we do up here. This music that we do is not a joke. What we do culturally is not a joke.'

The rapper also mentioned his marriage to Kim, telling the audience: 'For me to be in a very publicized interracial relationship is not a joke. It's something that should be treated with respect cause we’re all in this together.'

The star also tried to make light of his legendary ego, saying his intention is to help everybody with his creative work.

'They try to make it seem like a self absorbed thing, but the bottom line is that I want to be able to create more, to create more that can help more people,' he said.


'I know everybody's doing their job. But before we go to the next song, what I want people to realize is what we do we put our love, our heart, our pain, our story, our lives into it.'

Pharoah's impersonation played on West's legendary ego, taking in a crowd which included Kim and her half sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner.

'They asked me to come out here and tell y'all about the artists to watch. But there's really only one artist to watch - ME!' Pharoah's West proclaimed.

'I created television! Can't nobody else do that Matt Lauer. I didn't even get an award even though everything I do is genius. My videos cure ALS, y'all! I don't need to do no ice bucket challenge!'

Pharoah, who also impersonated Jay-Z, then went on to describe Kim as 'the smartest human being on the planet,' adding: 'Me and Kim are so next level, we named our daughter North West after an airline that no longer exists.'

Meanwhile, Kim's proud 'momager' Kris Jenner posted a snap of the couple backstage at the Made In America gig.

Kanye was pictured wearing a Yeezus jacket while holding hands with Kim who sported a slinky black dress with side cut outs.


Kris also posted a selfie with daughter Kylie, who in turn shared a dramatic photo of Kanye on stage.
