COLBERT: You listen to music though right?

PHELPS: Yes. Yes.

COLBERT: I understand like you lock in...

PHELPS: Always.

COLBERT: You lock in with the iTunes and then you lock out.

PHELPS: It's always Lil Wayne, usually.

COLBERT: Low.....

PHELPS: Lil....Lil Wayne.

COLBERT: Lil Wayne?

PHELPS: L-I-L Wayne. Lil Wayne.

COLBERT: Oh, I thought you said it's usually low end.

PHELPS: No. No. Lil Wayne.

COLBERT: I'm like, really, you bring it down. Low. You Know?


COLBERT: Something really mellow. Joni Mitchell. You know? You dive in the pool and just drown.
