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?

  1. How is this being posted when you haven’t even done anything with the TWO flyers games from last weekend? Cmon Kyle step it up man.

  2. Lord have mercy. Before you know it, Adele will be cutting a rap album. Now THAT I would pay cash money for!

  3. greatest comedians of our time? Are you for real? Have you even heard any of his jokes since Larry David stopped writing for him?

  4. 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..

  5. Sponsored post: visit for NBA and NCAA picks. Tell them Kyle Scott sent you for 20% off.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. 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…
