To celebrate Independence Day, “Community” star Donald Glover released his new Childish Gambino mixed tape, “Royalty.” The actor-musician also includes tracks from Alley Boy, RZA, and Danny Brown, and the rap stylings of none other than “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey.
The “Saturday Night Live” alum brings it, with zingers such as “my president is black and my Prius is blue.” And "This is the part where most people would say something crazy and drop the N-word after it … I don’t feel comfortable.”
The two talents share a connection: Donald Glover played Young Tracy Jordan for the live episode of “30 Rock,” a show he wrote for prior to joining the cast of “Community.” Perhaps now Fey is returning the favor.
The comedian’s unmistakable voice can be heard at the end of the track “Real Estate,” and the lines -- definitely not safe for work and seriously naughty -- go like this:
Yeah we in here, we in this thing
Gambino is forever, royalty is forever
We ballin’ till we f----- up the hardwood, homie
This is the life we live, son
My president is black and my Prius is blue, motherf-----
Royalty all day, we droppin’ racks at Nordstrom, son
That’s racks on racks d-----. 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, I’m not gonna do that
I don’t feel comfortable
Fey’s turn on the mixed tape had Twitter humming.
Hannibal Buress @hannibalburess posted, “Gambino has Alley Boy and Tina Fey on the same track on his new mixtape. That will never happen in the world ever again.”
Valentine @himynameisvalex adds, “Childish gambino's mixtape drops july 4th. thank you donald glover.”
Glover’s hourlong release is a followup to his freshman offering, “Camp,” which hit No. 11 on the Billboard charts. Fey may help it hit even more of a high note.
