Not sure about you, but when I heard the album version of Kendrick Lamar's "i," where he broke down the word negus in a fire spoken word segment, one thing immediately came to mind: this old viral video of yung Andrew Lay, a 2007 Scripps National Spelling Bee contestant having to spell negus. That video on its own is golden, especially if you're hoping that Lay–who makes sure that he is given every definition and use of the word–doesn't randomly drop the N-word.

Thanks to the Internets, someone combined the two clips, producing a thing of beauty. And remember: when in doubt, sound it out.
