Andy Samberg from SNL talks to NPR about parodies of hip-hop

nprfreshair:

Andy Samberg of The Lonely Island talks to Terry Gross about why the group parodies hip-hop:

We’re tiny little white dudes. We weren’t living the rap life at all. We just loved the music … [T]hat’s where our comedy comes from: It comes from a love for what that music is and what it represents, but also always drawing a clear line to let everyone know that we don’t believe that we’re part of it.

Love this!
