Detroit comedian half of the duo who brings us 'Negrotown'

Our ears always perk up a bit when we hear the name Keegan-Michael Key. He's a Detroit guy, one who started out in the same comedy scene that produced a host of other nationally successful comics and actors. He went on to be a cast member of MADtv, as did New York native Jordan Peele. You might know them better from their Key & Peele show on Comedy Central. The duo's fifth season is scheduled to begin in July.

That may be they they've decided to release this catchy little ditty online a couple months before their season premiere. It's a bit of satire (with a dark conclusion) that's been making the rounds on social media (1.5 million views already) called "Negrotown."
