In the above video, posted to YouTube, Seinfeld said that he got a call from Wale (who happened to be his wife’s favorite hip hop artist?) because he wanted the comedian to “do something with him” for a new album, appropriately called #Nothing. That “something” is a collab 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?”
Seinfeld also mentions in the video, that he had to come to Philly to record for he album. No more info on when or where it all went down 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? Jerry Seinfeld is at the point in his career where he can do whatever the hell he wants. And he sure did.
