Tina Fey rapped a verse on "Community" star Donald Glover's musical alter ego Childish Gambino's single, "Real Estate."

Childish Gambino released his mixtape "Royalty" on July 4, with a free download on his official website. The mixtape features several guest rappers including Ghostface Killah, RZA, Beck, Danny Brown, Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q. But it was Tina Fey's contribution that is making headlines.

In the song, the "30 Rock" star raps, "Yeah, we in here, we in this thing/ Gambino is forever, royalty is forever, big ballin' so we're [expletive] up the hardwood homey. This is the way we live son. My president is black and my Prius is blue [expletive] [expletive]."

"Royalty all day, we droppin' racks at Nordstrom, son, that's racks on racks dammit," Fey continued. "You feel me? You feel me? This is the part where most people would say something crazy and drop the n-word after it - Not going to. Not gonna do that. I Don't feel comfortable! I'm out!"

Glover began his comedy career as a writer for "30 Rock," during the show's first two seasons, before leaving to star on NBC's "Community," where he portrays Troy Barnes.

He released his critically-acclaimed debut Childish Gambino studio album, "Camp," last year.

"30 Rock" will return for a 13-episode seventh season, which will be the comedy's final season, the network confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com. "30 Rock" has suffered from low ratings over the past year and stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin's contracts are up after season seven.

"Community" will also return for an abbreviated 13-episode fourth season.
