"Community" star Donald Glover, a.k.a. rapper Childish Gambino, enlisted former boss "30 Rock" Tina Fey to spit a verse on his new mix-tape track, "Real Estate."
Her performance is not embarrassing.
"Real Estate" is a pretty straightforward song about being rich. It doesn't stand out much until Fey jumps in for a verse, in what could have been yet another white-person-rapping-and-sounding-awkward joke. But Fey commits. And her voice sounds good.
Story continues after the song:
"My president is black and my Prius is blue, mothafucka," she raps.
The obligatory awkward-white-person part doesn't come until the end, after Fey has proven herself at the very least an interesting MC. The moment comes when Fey opts not to add to the song's many dropped N-words.
"This is the part where most people would say something crazy and drop the N-word after it," she says. "Not doing that, I'm not doing that, I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE! I'm out."
Betty White also gets name-checked on the track. Fey turned up to join White for the "Saturday Night Live" episode the "Hot in Cleveland" star hosted.
Glover wrote for Fey's "30 Rock" before joining "Community." He has also appeared on "30 Rock," including as a version of Tracy Morgan's Tracy Jordan.
