Fresh off their amped-up appearances at the MTV Woodie Awards earlier this week, A$AP Rocky and A$AP Ferg are feelin’ out the feline life. Before you ask, no, there’s no raunchy innuendo implied there -- the MCs have literally become cats for HBO’s new animated series Animals.
In a clip from this week’s episode, Rocky and Ferg take turns spitting rhymes catered to a bodega kitty’s lifestyle. Choice lines include “If you asked me what my favorite dish is/ Either pussy or the fishes” and “Knick knack paddy whack, fuck your dog bone.”
The most memorable bit, however, comes when A$AP Ferg recounts the time Kanye West stopped in to their humble abode: “Kanye walked in to pick up some rice/Guess who popped out?/ It was a talking mice/ He said ‘Hey you, wake up Mr. West’/ ‘I know you fly but dammit I’m fresh.’” Believe it or not, it's actually a pretty catchy track.
Animals tells the imagined stories of critters living in New York City, and also features characters voiced by Adam Scott, Kurt Vile, Marc Maron, Jessica Chastain, Cobie Smolders, and Wanda Sykes. The series airs on HBO on Fridays at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
