Childish Gambino’s New Mixtape Royalty Features Actress Tina Fey and Rocker Beck
Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) called on a good friend to help close out his, Royalty mixtape, which dropped yesterday on the Fourth of July.
While the mixtape features guests like The Rza, ScHoolboy Q, Danny Brown, Nipsey Hussle, and Bun B, none other than actor Tina Fey plays closer, doing a whole lot of hilarious thrash talking on “Real Estate,” the 18th and final track on the mixtape.
“Yeah we in here, we in this thing,” Fey begins her reckless talk saying. “Gambino is forever, Royalty is forever. We ballin’ till we fuckin’ up the hardwood, homie. This the life we live, son.
“My president is Black and my Prius is blue, muthafucka,” she adds. “Royalty all day, we droppin’ racks at Nordstrom, son. That’s racks on racks damnit, you feel me? You feel me? This is the part where most people would say something crazy and drop the n-word after it. I’m not going to. I’m not doing that, I’m not doing that, I DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE! I’m out.”
Gambino and Fey crossed paths, when he was writing for and acting on 30 Rock, which Fey starred in and created. Coincidentally, she rapped as the character Lemonem on 30 Rock, before appearing as a guest on Gambino’s “Real Estate,” which also features Alley Boy and Swank.
Fey isn’t the only out of box surprise on Gambino’s compilation, though. “Silk Pillow” has the alternative-rocker Beck rapping slowly over the mellow track.—Mark Lelinwalla
