Collabos are standard practice in hip-hop and Childish Gambino, the rap alter ego of actor and comedian Donald Glover, has lined up some stellar names on his latest mixtape, "Royalty." Everyone from hot-in-the-streets rappers like Schoolboy Q to Wu-Tang Clan mastermind The RZA drop verses. However, one notable guest doesn't hail from the hip-hop world: "30 Rock" creator Tina Fey.

Gambino, a former "30 Rock" writer, enlisted the funnywoman for a few unexpected lines on the final track, "Real Estate." Fey closes out the track with some random Liz Lemon-esque musings like, "My president is black and my prius is blue" and "We dropping racks at Nordstrom, son." The comic wraps up with "This is the part where most people would say something crazy and drop the n-word after it. Not going to, not gonna do that, I don't feel comfortable! I'm out."

The head-turning team-ups don't end there. Quirky rocker Beck lends his skills to "Silk Pillow."

Listen to the entire track at Entertainment Weekly's website. Please note the strong language.
