Comedy rap trio and Saturday Night Live team the Lonely Island surprised listeners last year with their humorous but ironically genuine parody album Increibad. Now, the trio – which is comprised of SNL star Andy Samberg and writers/directors Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone – has announced their plans to release their sophomore LP in 2011.
Although Lonely Island’s previous effort found the group collaborating with hit-makers like Justin Timberlake and T-Pain, the group also looked to some of underground Hip Hop’s elite for support. They enlisted the help of a number of prolific independent producers, including J-Zone (R.A. the Rugged Man’s “Brawl,” Cage’s “Stoney Lodge”), Jurassic 5’s DJ Nu-Mark and Wyshmaster (Tech N9ne’s “Sickology 101,” Nelly’s “U Ain’t Him”).
While there are few details available about the album, the trio released a YouTube video that features a short snippet of a song which may appear on the album (see below). DX will keep you updated as more information is revealed.
