Beats By Scott

5 Best Rapper Moments From Comedy Bang! Bang!

T-Pain brings the beats to Comedy Bang! Bang! this Friday at 11P.

Posted by on

Judging by the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast, host Scott Aukerman is a huge hip-hop fan. Rap battles are a regular feature on the show, with Aukerman always beginning “My name’s Rappin’ Scott and I’m here to say, it’s fun to rap in a [fill in the blank] way.” His IFC talk show has also shown a penchant for highlighting rap in an offbeat (and sometimes off-key) way. With Auto-tune maestro T-Pain set to stop by this week, we thought we’d take a look back at some of the greatest (and most surprising) rappers to ever sit on the CBB couch.

5. MC Andrew Lloyd Webber

Comedy Bang! Bang! all-star Paul F. Tompkins shows up here as a rapping Andrew Lloyd Webber, putting a new spin on his classic musical Jesus Christ Superstar. Let’s hope something rhymes with Judas.

4. Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi had a lot of great moments during his time as a CB!B! bandleader, but we’ll never forget his take on Riff Raff in the show’s Rocky Horror Picture Show spoof.

3. The Lonely Island

Canadian Indie Pop stars Tegan and Sara have a problem. Ever since their hit “Everything is Awesome,” from The Lego Movie, the Lonely Island boys insist on following them around and interrupting them with rap verses, which is just plain rude.

2. Schoolboy Q

Schoolboy Q

Schoolboy Q gave Scott some inside info during his season four appearance. Did you know that he got his name thanks to a very specific sponsorship deal? “I get paid a sh– ton of money just to say the letter Q,” he revealed.

1. A$AP Rocky

Asap Rocky

Asap Rocky 2

Asap Rocky 3

Thank god for Reggie Watts. The former bandleader may be gone, but will never be forgotten, what with all the blunts he left  in the couch cushions. Here, hip-hop superstar A$AP Rocky proved even weed couldn’t make host Scott Aukerman (“Not Smoker-man”) cool.

Check out T-Pain’s sure-to-be-hit new song in a clip from Friday’s brand new Comedy Bang! Bang!.


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
