Watch This: Tank Mocks Brian McKnight

Brian McKnight is now saying his new and very explicit "If You're Ready to Learn" song was "a parody." But that's not stopping people from making fun of him for composing it in the first place.

In this clip from Chicago's Morning Riot radio show, Tank takes jabs at everything from the song's content to McKnight's hair ("I don't condone anyone over 7 with a Mohawk"). Some have pointed out that the "Maybe I Deserve" singer's music is not exactly at the top of the charts right now, either. But if this routine is any indication, he might have a second career in comedy. Watch it here, at the 2:35 mark.
