The Lonely Island “Spell It Out” In New Video
Last week, XXL caught up with comedy troupe/hip-hop trio The Lonely Island for a roundtable interview about their forthcoming LP, The Wack Album, which boasts appearances from new and old rap icons like Kendrick Lamar and Too $hort. In the interview, the guys talked about their marketing strategy for the album, in which they’ve released new music and videos weekly via their Wack Wednesdays series. Today, they’re back with a completely ridiculous video for their equally ridiculous song “Spell It Out.” In it, Andy Samberg raps a long and nonsensical phrase, letter by letter. Check it out above.
A hint: YouTube commenter F. Taveira deciphered the letters and compiled them into this phrase: “DUDE THAT HAS SEX WITH PIGS FOR MONEY BUT ONLY AS A SIDE THING RIGHT NOW, I’M JUST SHORT ON CASH AND HAVE IRONS IN THE FIRE BUT IN THIS ECONOMY IT’LL HAVE TO DO MY NAME IS LENNY.” So…Wack Album on the way.
