Finally, That Viral Spelling-Bee Kid Has Kendrick Lamar to Help Him Spell ‘Negus’


Ever wonder what happens to kids from viral videos? (I know I worry about Lil TerRio all the time.) A few years ago, one video in particular of a spelling bee went viral when a white kid was asked to spell the word negus. I'm sure you can guess why. Now someone has mashed up that video with the album version of Kendrick Lamar's "i," in which he gives the etymology and definition of the word. The kid eventually spelled it correctly (to his surprise), but just imagine if he had Kendrick in his ear. Bet the song probably brings back some bad memories for him now.
