Andy Samdberg > Your Favorite Rapper

I’ve surprisingly been feeling a lot of these new cats’ music as of late.

I’ve been bumping anything Nipsey Hu$$le puts out, took notice of Jay Rock since I heard him merk that “Crack A Bottle” freestyle and Drake’s So Far Gone mixtape is still in rotation. I’ve also been feeling a lot of material coming from our Freshmen 10 MCs. It looks like hip-hop’s in good hands after all. I’m thinking a few of those cats will end up carrying the torch into the future.

Let’s not forget the vets, though. Say what you will about his CO past, but anything Rick Ross has put out in the last few months, has been FUEGO! Weezy’s still a beast, Jim Jones is improving by the album and it’s great to hear Cam again. But my new favorite rapper is Andy Samberg, the more recognizable member of The Lonely Island, a hip-hop comedy group of SNL fame. In case you aren’t familiar with Samberg, he, alongside partners-in-rhyme  Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, has been dropping hilarious Digital Shorts via SNL for a few years now. “Lazy Sunday,” “Dick In A Box and “Jizz In My Pants” just to name a few, are funny as hell. But their latest release, “I’m On The Boat” got me on the bandwagon. It’s the best rap song of the year.

I just love that these guys don’t take themselves too seriously. Sadly, they flow better than some rappers out there. And Lonely Island’s debut, Incredibad (they’re apparently more creative as well), outsold every rap record on the week of its release a while back. I’m on the boat!
