Due to “final exams,” I have to somehow not play with the “internet” all the time, nor post to my blog, if I want to “graduate law school.” So, in the interest of achieving said J.D. degree, today’s is a simple offering, though a swell one. It’s two videos of my boy Jonah Hill.

Connect 4 – Jonah Hill vs. Kanye from kwest on Vimeo.

Oh yeah, and obviously the song Kanye puts on in the background is maybe the best song ever, and you’re probably wondering what it is. It’s his own remix of Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop,” and it’s sick as hell. I’ll try to get an illegal link to it soon.

Some comments on that list:

1. My ass Outkast releases an album together this year; we’d be lucky if we got both solo albums in 2008.2. I can’t tell whether Edgar Allen Floe is just about the dumbest or hottest name I’ve ever heard.3. I can tell that When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold is just about the funniest name for an album I’ve ever heard.4. Detox/Carter III? I’ll believe it when I see it…
