Drake Supports Hannibal Buress Running For President But Black Thought Isn’t So Sure
Remember how Waka Flocka Flame was supposed to be running for president this year? We haven't heard much about his campaign in the wake of Trump, Clinton, and Bernie, but it looks like he's got some new competition - Hannibal Buress.
In an excellent new video put together by Sama'an Ashrawi and narrated by Chris Rock, celebrities and musicians talk about what they like - and dislike - about Hannibal.
Drake fucks with the comedian. "We need a real genuine winner out here to lift spirits up," reports the OVO leader from the softball game that Hannibal participated in back in July. "Hannibal has been doing a great job of that. Morale is at an all-time high."
"He represents a voice we haven't heard yet," says Flying Lotus. "It's amazing to watch." Thundercat agrees: "I'm happy that he keeps me with him because that dude is a pure comic genius."
But there are also the dissenters, like Black Thought and Jean Grae, who have witnessed Hannibal doing some questionable things. "There was a period, maybe a couple months...every time I'd drop by, [Hannibal would] be pissing in the sink," recalls Thought. "I don't know if that's a Chicago thing but I'm from Philly. We don't do that there."
Jean Grae says Hannibal tried to make her pee in the sink too, but she wasn't with it. "It's a little harder for women," says Jean, "and then he was like, 'Pee on top of my pee.' And I was like 'No...I don't...' So we stopped hanging out for a little bit."
Watch the hilarious clip above. Much props to Ashrawi, who filmed this over the course of a year in New York, Houston, L.A., and San Francisco. Catch Hannibal's new stand-up special 'Comedy Camisado' on Netflix right now.
