Aziz Ansari’s street cred just got a major boost.
The “Parks and Recreation” star made a small cameo in the music video for Jay Z and Kanye West’s “Otis.” The “30 Minutes or Less” star looks quite at home hanging out with the rap duo as they take a joyride in a customized Maybach with some lovely ladies.
In a Q&A on his Twitter, Ansari said filming video was “crazy fun.” “Best part was when a catering dude came to set with a plate of sandwiches” and asked Jay-Z if he wanted roast beef of turkey, he tweeted. “Jay-Z: You got any peanut butter & jelly up in there?”
Ansari is actually friends with West, who “feuded” with his cousin Darwish.
