What do you get when you cross Kanye West's "I Am a God" with Jay Pharoah and a bit of dog-as-human comedy a la FX's "Wilfred"? Probably the best Kanye West parody ever.

In the stark black-and-white clip, Pharoah gets down and dirty doggystyle with a delivery that's spot-on Kanye, only the lyrics have been changed to match the canine theme. The comedian sports a black dog nose and some floppy ears, making him look like Wilfred's dark cousin, while barking out such lyrical gems as, "I am a dog / Hurry up let me out of the garage / Hurry up give my balls a massage / Before I start barking like Nicki Minaj." Later in the track, Pharoah growls, "You want to neglect me / You want to neglect me / Well I'm gonna chew your shoes 'til they're nonexistent." If you have a dog and you've heard Kanye, you can relate.

(The clip below contains some strong language)

Produced by Above Average, Lorne Michael's production company's YouTube channel, don't be surprised if the clip turns up on "Saturday Night Live" once the show starts its new season. It's a heck of a lot better than the clip of Kanye's lost pilot for an HBO sitcom that turned up on YouTube last month. When talking about his quest to land a show on HBO, Kanye once claimed he was "the black Larry David." Now, however, Pharoah is showing that 'Ye is funnier as a black dog.
