Actor, comedian and rapper Donald Glover, better known in the hip-hop world as Childish Gambino, dropped an Independence Day mixtape called Royalty that included a surprisingly odd guest verse. Yes, in addition to features from Beck, Bun B, Danny Brown and Ghostface Killah, Childish unveiled a crazy collaboration with comedian Tiny Fey as MTV Newsroom reports.
The “30 Rock” creator and star drops-by on the effort’s final track, “Real Estate.” The clear Rick Ross satire breezes by with Gambino and Alley Boy Swank trading barbs. Then Fey comes out of nowhere, dropping “racks at Nordstroms” and remarking “my president is black, my Prius is blue.”
Getting more and more riled-up, Fey points out that this is “where most people would say something crazy and drop the N-word after it.” Luckily, she avoids that route. Tough-talking Tina serves as yet another reminder that, while Childish Gambino has gone from a potential joke to a legitimate artist that gets Ghostface verses, there’s still some comedy behind it all.
