Sean Evans, a.k.a. some guy that works at Complex, has a YouTube series where he interviews various celebrities while sharing progressively spicy chicken wings with them. In exchange for making it to the top of the Scoville scale, the guests receive a chance to turn directly to the cameras and plug their upcoming album or whatever. It's a fun, straightforward concept, and I appreciate how transparent the host is about the transactional nature of it all.
Do you know what is really great about these videos, however? Getting to laugh at DJ Khaled. Seriously, this interview is a beautiful mess. In addition to plugging an upcoming album of his, he apparently arrived with the intention of also plugging chicken wings from his restaurant. Shortly after explaining to Sean what it really means to be a "fuccboi," DJ Khaled takes a bite out of the second hot wing and immediately quits the challenge while denying that he's actually quitting. He then went on to warn the youth about the dangers of Cholula sauce, which he doesn't "vibe" with. Listening to the incoherent answers he gave throughout this interview gave me a window into how people who aren't as used to Kanye West as I am must feel whenever they listen to him talk.
I also watched another episode with Tinashe, who handled the challenge with aplomb. She was quick-witted and entertaining throughout the video, and it also turns out that she's a black belt. That's kind of cool! I'll probably give one of her albums a listen sometime soon. Once again, though, the best part about watching this was getting to laugh at DJ Khaled. The host took multiple digs at him during this episode and I cracked up each time. DJ Khaled... what a fuccboi.
