Watch Tiffany Haddish Flawlessly Play Cardi B on ‘SNL’

 

Can you feel the Cardi B love tonight? Fresh off an iconic New York Magazine cover, the Bronx native cemented her status as the biggest female rapper of the year with a spot-on SNL impersonation delivered by Girls Trip breakout Tiffany Haddish.

As you no doubt saw, Disney’s Lion King remake is going to star Beyoncé, Donald Glover, and a host of other huge celebrities, which made it perfect for an SNL sendup. In the skit, the cast imagined what might have happened during the audition process, which meant enough celebrity impersonations to last a lifetime.

Besides Haddish playing Cardi B, everyone from LL Cool J and Eminem to Lin-Manuel Miranda and Mary J. Blige got the impersonation treatment. Watch it.
