Adam McKay Invites Mos Def To Spit A Verse



Director, producer, writer and Will Ferrell BFF, Adam McKay hit Twitter today to drop some mad knowledge on the world. First he teased, "Are we currently working on a Step Bros rap album? Yup." But before we could begin to speculate as to what this could all mean, he followed it up confirming he meant he exactly what he said: "I wasn't kidding about Step Bros rap album. And we just found out we have a crazy big time producer. Mos Def, you up for a guest flow?"

All we can say is: this rules.

Believe it or not, "Step Brothers" is a favorite around Playlist headquarters; it has so many fantastic, absurd moments that we just don't know where to begin but if a rap album means more of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and hopefully, with videos too, then sign us up. Could this mean that "Step Brothers 2" is possibly on the way? We dare to dream and earlier this summer, during the whole "Anchorman 2" fiasco, Adam McKay hinted that there might be a small chance it could happen. The film did $128 million worldwide which sounds great until you factor in that it had a budget of $65 million not including P&A. Still, if a rap album means we're one step closer to more Dale and Brennan we'll buy a copy. And if you have no idea what we're talking about, do yourself a massive favor and go rent "Step Brothers" right now.

No word yet on who this mega-producer is or if Mos Def will grace the album with his presence but those details are sure to come. And considering how successful The Lonely Island have been with their comedy songs, no surprise that Will Ferrell and co. are eager to ride that wave. Could a new renaissance in comedy music be building? We'll have to wait and see...
