Jay-Z might think his rap cadence is inimitatable: The nasal voice modulations, the rise in pitch to mark the beginning of each new phrase; the corny filler lines he uses when stumbling to complete a thought (Uhh ... the Roc is in the building ... it's ya boy, it's ya boy ... young ho in the house, it's so necessary). But in his signature Jay-Z impression, comedian Aries Spears manages to capture every grunted consonant, every lisped "s," every off-handed "nah mean?," every elided vowel, and every hard "h" on "ho." What's more, he does uncanny impersonations of LL Cool J, DMX, Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, and Queen Latifah. Spears returns to Tommy T's Comedy and Steakhouse (5104 Hopyard Rd., Pleasanton) June 5-8. Showtimes at 7, 7:30, and 9:30 p.m. $15-$35 TommyTs.com
