The Lonely Island - The Wack Album
These dudes.

When Andy Samberg left SNL, fans instantly mourned the loss of the digital short. To cushion the blow, I present "The Wack Album".

Honestly, is there anything more entertaining than self-aware rappers? No. The answer is no.

Like the other Lonely Island albums, there are a few SNL shorts, all-star guest vocals, jokes, and the answers to some lingering questions about who really runs New York.

Guest spots include Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Robyn, Pharrell Williams, T-Pain, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, and Solange. Basically, artists coming from every direction.

This album goes deep. "Semicolon" explores rappers making grammatical errors in their lyrics. The Adam Levine assisted "YOLO" flips Drake's "The Motto" into a cautionary tale about the dangers of the world. "Go Kindergarten", a club anthem that takes instructing listeners on how to act to a new level, is one of the best songs on this album. And of course, The Wack Album is home to the continuation of the Justin Timberlake trilogy with "3-Way".

I'm not gonna lie to you, I'm clearly a fangirl, but I am right about how nothing is more entertaining. Even if you aren't a fangirl I'm sure you'll agree with me. So go and download this and laugh and sing along and turn it up in your car until you can't hear and roll down the windows and look like a badass.
