Tina Fey Raps on New Childish Gambino Mixtape
Turns out, among all the notable collaborators on the project (The RZA, Bun B, Danny Brown, Schoolboy-Q), one in particular is getting quite a bit of attention: Tina Fey.
Yes, Tina Fey of SNL and 30 Rock fame drops her own verse on the track “Real Estate.”
While some may be surprised, it is widely known that Fey and Glover have worked together before, as he was a writer on 30 Rock before moving on to Community. Fey is also no stranger to the rap world (sort of)—she once portrayed “Lemonem,” her own alter-ego who took the stage at the Apollo in a season six episode of 30 Rock.
The mixtape also features collaborations with Beck—one featuring Beck on vocals and another produced by the 90s rocker.
Below is Fey’s verse, which closes out the track—and record—in her own special, awkward way:
Yeah we in here, we in this thing.
Gambino is forever, royalty is forever.
We ballin’ till we f-ckin’ up the hardwood, homie.
This the life we live, son.
My president is black and my prius is blue, motherf-cker.
Royalty all day, we droppin’ racks at Nordstrom, son.
That’s racks on racks, damn it, you feel me? You feel me?
This is the part where most people would say something crazy and drop the n-word after it.
Not going to, not gonna do that, I don’t feel comfortable!
Listen to the whole song below—or just skip towards the end for Fey’s hilarious verse:
