Prestige Worldwide—the killer combination of financial portfolios, insurance, computers, and black leather gloves that is Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s Step Brothers international music corporation-cum-rap duo Huff 'N Doback—is reportedly at work on releasing an actual album, according to Adam McKay. The director of the 2008 comedy recently tweeted the answer to a question no one thought to ask, saying, “Are we currently working on a Step Bros rap album? Yup.” And before we could laugh it off as simple Twitter chicanery, McKay swore that he’s serious: “I wasn’t kidding about Step Bros rap album. And we just found out we have a crazy big time producer. Mos Def, you up for a guest flow?” Of course, there’s no official confirmation from Ferrell, Reilly, or whoever the “crazy big time producer” might be—and given the viral success of their recent parody of Bing Crosby and David Bowie’s “Little Drummer Boy,” something tells us this is all just build-up for some sort of “behind the scenes” Funny Or Die video. But you know, that would be okay too. [The Wrap]
