When director and earnest king of Instagram Jonah Hill was a guest on 105.1’s “Breakfast Club” this week to talk about his directorial debut Mid90s, his friendship with Q-Tip, and his love of rap. The culture of skating is like the culture of rap, Hill said, and he approached it with a similar preciousness. The director says he never really rapped himself, but he did disclose some details about his days as a teen beat-maker. “This is an exclusive. It was bad,” he said. “I didn’t have a rap name, I didn’t have an MC name, but I made a lot of beats. And to be honest, at least my sample game — my diggin’ game — was tight … It’s really embarrassing: It’s Spindrome.”
Hosts DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne tha God looked incredulous. “Spin-drome?” they asked, in unison.
Hill clarified. “Like syndrome, but spin,” he said.
