Earlier this week, we premiered Lukey the Bird’s forthcoming LP “Mr. Luke, You Corny.” Now, the hyper-posi emcee joined us via Google Hangouts to share some songs from the comfort of his home in suburban Philadelphia.
Lukey battled through an oft-jumpy Internet connection and a sudden thunder storm to talk about producing “Mr. Luke, You Corny.” his comedy rap group HAHA-YO, and being cool with people thinking you’re a hokey motherfucker. There was even a surprise visit from Boyder, HAHA-YO’s chief goofball, who got real about how Serious Luke is about to blow up.
You can catch Lukey the Bird at Jamaica Plain’s UFORGE Gallery this Saturday at 6 p.m. as part of the Mr. Hip Presents reading series. “Mr. Luke, You Corny” drops on May 1, and you can connect with Lukey on Twitter at @lukeythebird or at featherfeatherfeather.com.
