If imitation is really the highest form of flattery, then two MTV2 stars got their egos stroked BIG time this weekend. During Lena Dunham’s “Saturday Night Live” debut, the iconic show spoofed Lil Duval and Charlamagne Tha God with a hilarious skit starring comedians Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thompson as the double dog-headed network’s dynamic duo.
In the sketch, Kenan and Jay introduce themselves as LeGod Williams and Lil’ Taint Anthony — two talk show hosts who discuss “What’s Poppin’” in hip-hop. Sound familiar, “Charlamagne & Friends” fans? However, that’s where the similarities end, because — let’s just say — LeGod’s guests are no Rick Ross. When the white-bread band “That’s A Rap” hits the stage, LeGod and Lil’ Taint are left confused by their lack of street cred. “Why would you do this?!” LeGod asks. Tha God would never treat his guests that way!
Meanwhile, the real Charlamagne was too busy clubbing to catch the live telecast, but once his Twitter feed blew up, he had even more reason to party. “Lil Duval and I Got spoofed on SNL tonight and I’m in the club so now I’m about to celebrate,” he tweeted. And Lil D was equally thrilled. “N**** we made it!” he wrote. Taint that the truth!
