De La Soul pioneered skits in hip-hop with their 1989 3 Feet High and Rising
album. Since then, various rap acts have used comedic sketches both to introduce their records and as interludes between songs.
For Can't Say I Ain't Country
, the Florida Georgia Line duo teamed with a character named Brother Jervel for four comedic skits which are interspersed between the disc's tracks. "We just thought it would be a cool little ode to some of the old hip-hop records back in the day," FGL's Brian Kelley explained to The Boot
. "It hadn't really been done in a long time, so we thought it would be a cool thing to do, and a cool way to show our personality."
