Just when you thought Chance the Rapper had a monopoly on amazing rapper-powered commercials, Kendrick Lamar and Shaq's new spots for American Express have arrived, and are some of the funniest we've ever seen.

In the trio of ads, Kendrick Lamar and Shaq show all the fun that can happen when one of the world's most respected MCs and one of the world's most respected rapping basketball players go soap-sampling together. All three are a must-watch, and just what we needed at this time.

While we haven't yet gotten a title or a date for the next Kendrick Lamar album (or the next Shaq album) these ads are enough to hold us over for now.
