If someone were to ask you to make a list of the most unlikely duos you could imagine, Jerry Seinfeld and rap superstar Wale would likely be at the top of that list. However the pair, which have been collaborating with each other for some time, have recently released a rap album entitled The Album About Nothing.

Featuring exclusive writing by Seinfeld, paired with Wale’s musical talent, the duo produced an album which hit shelves on March 31st. This isn’t Wale’s first Seinfeld inspired album either. One of the rapper’s first major albums was entitled Mixtape About Nothing, which came out back in 2007, as well as a follow up album entitled More About Nothing in 2010.

“I watched the show a lot. So I did a Mixtape About Nothing in 2007. I just poked a lot of fun at society and the industry ‘cause what was hot at the time was ‘snap your fingers’ and all that,” Wale explained in an interview with Hiphopdx. “So I had an interesting perspective on the industry. Basically I just ran with that, I did a Mixtape About Nothing and I used the a lot of dialogue from Seinfeld. And then, 2010, you know, by this point I’m signed to Interscope and I have a different perspective on things and I did the More About Nothing mixtape. I used more dialogue from Seinfeld. Now, we’re here in 2014, I’m using a lot of personal things and things that are going on in my life now as well as exclusive content from Jerry Seinfeld and a little bit of the show.”

As for Seinfeld’s involvement with the album, he first met Wale at one of his shows. The two hit it off and decided to collaborate on an album together. “Hip-hop is words, right? So, I do words. Why don’t you take my words and something with it. I don’t know how to do it, but I thought, ‘just take my words,’” he explained to Heeb Magazine.

Now Seinfeld and Wale, in celebration of their newest album, have put out a video Seinfeld-style where they call rapper Rick Ross who, not so long ago, released his album entitled Black Bar Mitzvah, to tell them the good news.

As you can imagine, it's pretty damn hilarious.
