Tina Fey Is a Rapper Now

We're not entirely sure this is a full-time career change for Tina Fey, but stranger things have happened. The 30 Rock star, who's already logged professional time as a comedian, actor, writer, producer and author, has now undertaken a new craft: rapping. And even though we're pretty sure she's joking about it, Fey still sounds better than a lot of people who actually make money doing it. 

Childish Gambino (AKA former 30 Rock writer and current Community actor Donald Glover) has dropped his latest track, "Real Estate," off of his Royalty mixtape. The track begins the same way most Gambino tracks do: Glover laying down a clever flow over a generally decent beat. Alley Boy Swank is also featured on the track, but it's not until about the five-minute mark where Tina shows up and goes cray-cray: "We ballin' so we f***in' up the hardwood, homie... My president is black and my Prius is blue, motherf***er... This is the part where most people would say something crazy and drop the 'N' word after it/Not going to, not gonna do that/I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE, I'm out."

Check out Tina's verse (and Gambino's new track) below, and let us know what you think about Fey's possible new career in the comments.
