Yesterday, after finishing the first leg of his North American tour with Vince Staples, Buddy stopped by the Beats 1 studio to play the “NewerYork Spelling Bee.”

The game is a hip-hop focused play on the famous New York Times Spelling Bee. Like the best of us, Buddy had a hard time landing words like “psychedelic,” “finesse” and embarrassingly, “embarrassing,” without the help of autocorrect. Check it out in the clip above.

He conceded the following later on Twitter:

The segment is part of Nadeska Alexis' new show on Apple's Beats 1, which premiered February 15. A$AP Rocky was the first contestant to come into the studio. Interestingly he was able to spell “fanute,” as coined by French Montana. He wasn't so lucky with “vigilante,” which he spelled out as “visual.”

To be fair, Alexis played the same game with Kendrick Lamar and Mac Miller at Bonnaroo and neither were able to successfully spell the name of the festival.

You can catch more NewerYork Spelling Bee on Apple Music every Friday at 12 p.m. in LA, 3 p.m in New York, and 8 p.m. in London.
