    "Lena Dunham" Rap Trio Hand Job Academy Dish On The Story Behind The Song, Their Name And More

    Last month we shared a video (filmed by Taylor Swift) of Lena Dunham dancing along to a song named after her by the all-girl Brooklyn rap trio Hand Job Academy. Although the song isn't actually about the GIRLS creator, it references her in the hook and on the line "finna let it all hang out, Lena Dunham." The video for the song also features a parody the text from Dunham's book cover for her biography Not That Kind Of Girl, switching out "a young women tell you want she's 'learned'" for "a bad b*tch tells you what she's 'learned." Music Times caught up with the women behind the Dunham-approved track, Clara Bizna$$, Uncle Meg, and Ash Wednesday. Here's what they had to say:
