Jerry Seinfeld Recorded a Rap Album in Philly


Screen Shot 2013-01-22 at 9.10.32 AM

What’s the deal with hip hop studios?! There are all these instruments… but nobody’s playing ‘em. It’s just guys, sittin’ around, throwin’ up gang signs and smokin’ weed. Where, is, the creative process?!

Jerry Seinfeld is at the point in his career where he can do whatever the hell he wants (deservedly so), and apparently what he wants to do is drop a beat. Well, sort of. 

In a video posted to YouTube, Seinfeld said that he got a call from rapper Wale – his wife’s favorite hip hop artist – who wanted the comedian to “do something with him.” That something was to collaborate on a new album, appropriately called #Nothing, in which Wale will apparently turn Seinfeld’s words into song.  

“I do words,” Seinfeld said on the video. “Why don’t you take my words and do something with them?”

The album was recorded in Philly, Seinfeld said in the video. We don’t know when, or where, but how did we miss the fact that one of the greatest comedians of our time was recording a hip hop album right under our noses?

    This has nothing to do about Rap or Seinfeld. I just wanted to send out CB’s daily reminder that DELCO is trash – Ridley is Garbage – Tinnicum is scum – Iraq > Springfield, etc. etc..

    The NY Post has a picture of Meek Mill (Philly’s own) yet it states it as Wale (from DC).

    Seinfeld was never funny – his standup has always sucked.
    Larry David was the man behind the show.
    Oh, and why is this a story on a sports blog?

    Seinfeld’s rap name was going to be Whiney Kike or Whiney K for short. Jeffrey Lurie and Howie Roseman threatened to sue assuring the public their jew rap duo was known and Whiney K first.
    geeze life must be tough for wealthy jews.

    Will you be making a post stating “anti-semiticism is alive and well in Philadelphia” and use some of the comments above as proof? Didn’t think so…
