SNL Gives The Official Explanation Of The Jay-Z and Solange Elevator Fight

May 18, 2014  |  

We have to hand it to SNL. After a few years of questionable comedy, the show has been redeeming itself lately. Last week they had viewers taking extra caution not to say Beyonce’s name in vain for fear of The Beygency. Last night’s episode gave the official lowdown on just why the elevator altercation went down between sister Solange and Jay-Z, with an appearance from someone whom we feel doesn’t nearly get enough credit, Julius The Bodyguard.

Comedienne Sasheer Zamata played “Solange”, Jay Pharaoh did an uncanny mimic of “Jay-Z” and Keenan Thompson got a few laughs as “Julius”. Even Maya Rudolph makes an appearance as the Queen Bey herself to put on blast The Standard security guard who leaked the surveillance video.

You’ll never guess why the assault went down.  It all makes so much sense now.  Peep the clip below:

    The funniest part was when Mata Rudolph came out… I love her!

    • Frank

      Violence against a Black man, this case Jay Z, is not funny.

      • Momma Dee Tha Q.U.E.E.N

        Did i say anything about the general situation? No. I spoke about Maya as Beyonce.

  • me

    Maya gives me everything when she plays Beyonce. LOL … She nails her each time. That girl is so talented.

    SNL has been on a role for a very LONG time… MN Just because you don’t understand that there are different varieties of comedy doesn’t mean that SNL is not funny.

  • Black Male Privilege

    You sound like a child. Stick to the topic which is violence against others and this men. Your verbal triage is nothing more deflection.

    • Black Male Privilege

      And if need to clear your throat more get a Halls and some lemon tea with whiskey… It works.

      • Chey

  • pumpkinj

    “I got arachnophobia” lmao…This was hilarious…not sure why them fighting is such big news as though they are superhuman or something, but I suppose money creates that illusion…but let me end with a more worthy subject: #Bringbackourgirls

  • empresstala

    “you know i hate spiders” LMAO

  • mmmdot

    Wow, SNL actually came up with something humorous. It was pretty funny when the body guard jumped in between them whenever ‘Solange’ raised her hand to speak and the spider part was hilarious.

  • hello my pets

    so when a women hits a man its funny but when a man hit a women its the end of the world

    • Shawndrea Rachelle

      Why is that so hard to comprehend? Alllllll of the millions of tons of double standards towards women you’d think we’d have a understanding of them by now

      • hello my pets

        women whine and complain to much stop playing the victim

      • louvres

        “Alllllll of the millions of tons of double standards towards women”
        Please tell me which ones and don’t come up with the equal pay thing..too much discussion on this topic..

    • mmmdot

      YES! Now shut the hell up with your fake azz victim complex.

  • FromUR2UB

    I thought the spider bit was pretty funny. Maya Rudolph was good too.

    • MonicaT

      Maya Rudolph is the truth! She is hilarious!!!

  • IllyPhilly

    SNL makes everything unfunny. It’s over now let it go MN.

    • Momma Dee Tha Q.U.E.E.N

      True, but I think them bringing back alumni really helped the funny factor. From what I’ve been seeing& hearing about from this season has been a bit of a struggle… Minus the one Drake hosted…
