Jay Pharoah has become a staple on Saturday Night Live, and not just because he’s the only skinny black guy and they need someone to imitate Barack Obama. Thankfully, he’s not letting himself be relegated to just working with SNL and has been putting out some funny music videos through Above Average Comedy. His newest video, Problems, starts out like any typical rap video, but slowly delves into the reality that most rappers don’t want you to know.


Oh what’s up then, bro?

We ’bout to ride on them, we ’bout to lay em’ down.
Oh you was talking slick, well talk that shit now.
You see our pictures, we getting bitches
I sent a group text mo’ bitches

You know what? I miss Sandra…I miss Sandra. She was the one that got away. She was dope. Okay, I messed up. I did. I did. And you know what? I hate the word bitch. You shouldn’t use that word. That’s a terrible word. You kiss your mother with that mouth? I don’t know why, I don’t why I do it.

I got problems. I got issues.
I got problems. Now where’s the tissues?
Because I’m dying inside. Said I’m dying inside.
I’m a hard core rapper and I’m crying, my eyes.

I smoke weed, bitch. I’m the green giant.
Turn my eyes red. They look like fire hydrants.
I got the munchies baby: bell cheese and Reeses.

I ain’t even really a weed smoker. I don’t do that. The first time I smoked weed, I ain’t feel nothing. But that second time, I got so high I had to check myself into the ER. So that’s not really a smart thing for me to do. I just want to be a farmer: E I E I O

I got problems. I got issues.
I got problems. Now where’s the tissues?

Money, money.
Imma make it rain. Drop a stack on these bitches-

Yo, I am in massive debt. Like, it is getting to a point where it is bad. I will suck yo dick if you help me. I am serious. My 8 baby moms be trippin. A-yo Sandra, call me up baby.

We got those problems, I got issues.
We need hugs, ay pass that tissues
Because I’m dying inside, said I’m dying inside.
I’m a hardcore rapper, now I’m drying my eyes.
