kay, we all know that– despite some very misleading headlines out there–she doesn’t really rap.

Check out Tina Fey’s brilliant impersonation of rap artists everywhere inside.

Now some people without a sense of humor were furious about the use of the word “rap” in so many of the posts on this. Lol. I get it; we should probably stop saying that everyone and anyone who jumps on a beat is rapping. But in this case, it’s just not that serious (clearly). Also, ‘rap’ is a loose term in general and yeah– pretty much anyone can do it. Not everyone can make a rap song (or a good one) but rapping is pretty straightforward. Still, Tina isn’t even rhyming on this so I would probably say that she’s the acting hype man, not a featured rapper.
And what a glorious hype man she is:
Royalty all day! We dropping racks at Nordstrom, son! That’s racks on racks, dammit!
