Nothing says comedy quite like a rap about cheddar chesse.

In the pilot for ABC’s sitcom “The Mayor,” star Brandon Micheal Hall and former “Hamilton” star Daveed Diggs performed just such a freestyle — which you can see in an exclusive behind-the-scenes video that includes words from co-stars Yvette Nicole Brown, Marcel Spears and Bernard David Jones.

The series follows Hall’s rapper Courtney Rose, who gets elected mayor in a surprise victory. Before he actually cared about doing the job well, he skipped out on a community cleanup event he organized to perform on stage with Daveed Diggs’ Mac Etcetera.

Not the best way to kick off his term in office — he ended up having to clean up the city commons all by himself after the community event got shut down by police because he wasn’t there.

If you’re looking for the full “Cheddar Cheese” track on Spotify, you’re out of luck at the moment, but you can check out five other tracks from “The Mayor” on the ubiquitous platform right here.

As for “The Mayor” itself, you can watch that on ABC on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET.

Watch the video above.
