101 Rap” is an improvised freestyle rap performed by Troy Barnes and Abed Nadir in their freshmen year at Greendale Community College. They were studying in Group Study Room F when Abed started beatboxing. Troy joined in by adding lyrics and the pair began alternating with spontaneous phrases and words they learned in Spanish class. It’s first appearance was in the Season One episode “Spanish 101.” The scene in which the rap appears is the first end tag of the series. The rap is track number two on Community’s official soundtrack.

101 Rap


Donde, está, la biblioteca.
Me llamo T-Bone, la araña discoteca.

Discoteca, muñeca, la biblioteca, es el bigote grande, perro, manteca.

Manteca, bigote, gigante, pequeño, cabeza es nieve, cerveza es bueno.

Buenos dias, me gusta papas frías, bigote de la cabra es Cameron Diaz.

Yeah boi. Boi. Yeah.


It’s 2009.



Dos mundos
Where is the library?

My name is T-Bone, the disco spider.

Disco, doll, the library, is in big mustache, dog, lard.

Lard, mustache, huge, little, head is ice cream, beer is good.

Good day, I like cold potatoes, the goat's mustache is Cameron Diaz.

Yea boi. Boi. Yea. What. It’s 2009. Word.



In the end tag to "Debate 109", Abed is directing another one of his short films, "The Community College Chronicles" based on the study group. With Troy's help, he is trying to film their counterparts on the show doing the 101 Rap, but Troy is unsatisfied with their performance.

Rapping originsEdit

Danny and Donald
In this interview, "Community" creator Dan Harmon mentioned how he saw Donald Glover and Danny Pudi hamming it up for reporters during a press junket. He was particularly impressed when he saw them doing an impromptu rap. This led to their characters doing the show's first end tag. Picking up on the actors' chemistry, Harmon continued to feature them prominently together in a few more episodes beginning the duo's onscreen bromance.

Live performancesEdit

In 2010, Joel McHale invited Danny Pudi and Donald Glover to his touring live show to perform the rap on stage at the Chicago Theater.
