The Lonely Island "The Wack Album" Thankfully Does Not Live Up To Its Name

Legitimate question: if someone ordered you to 'make your booty speak' and to 'teach that ass English', would you do it? This is one of the profound existential conundrums that premier comedy rap group The Lonely Island poses to their listeners on their brand new album, which dropped earlier this June.

'The Wack Album', the group's third, thankfully does not live up to its name. The album is jam packed with chuckle inducing magic that might just fill the comedic void in our lives since talking about dicks in boxes went stale.

Some gems worth highlighting include 'I F****d My Aunt', 'Diaper Money', and 'Go Kindergarten'. Don't let the names fool you - there is some legit social commentary on this album. Group member Jorma Taccone sums up how things have changed since their previous album, saying "We're grown men, so some of our songs are now talking about really adult issues. And then a lot of them aren't."

The Lonely Island consists of Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, and Akiva Schaffer, all of whom are recent SNL dropouts and have known each other since middle school. The trio's friendship-turned-comedy-career-turned-music-career is truly enviable, proof lying in the fact that on this last album alone they've recorded songs and videos with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Paul Rudd, Robyn, and Solange, just to name a few.

With a combo of star-studded track listings, intentionally over the top music videos, and seriously ridiculous, seriously hilarious lyrics, The Lonely Island has proven yet again that comedy rap doesn't have to be as lame as it sounds.
