waka-flocka-hannibal-buress-2016

Hannibal Buress is a man of many gifts. However, when the gits are turned on him … well, you get things like what Sama’an Ashrawi put together for the comedian and savant of Waka Flocka pastiche. He’s already spent some of his time weighing in on rappers, presidential candidates and whether or not presidential candidates even are like rappers in the first place. In true Sama’an fashion, he decides to blend all these things into what virtually may be a campaign promotional video — narrated by Chris f*cking Rock.

An Ode To Hannibal Buress confirms Waka’s proclamation that Buress would be his 2016 running mate for President along with an intro from Touré as well as kudos and ringing endorsements from the likes of Questlove, Black Thought, Drake (yes, straight from HAW 2015), Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Robert Glasper, Sonnymoon, Jean Grae and Eric André not to mention Abbi and Alanna from Broad City. Unlike most political endorsements, the celebrity cameos bring out some of Hannibal’s warts and less scrupulous behavior.

Most of all, An Ode To Hannibal Buress is pretty much a commemorative video to highlight how much of a good dude Hannibal Buress happens to be. He’s a team player, a jokester, a savant and more recently, a fan of New Japan Pro Wrestling. Now to give him his flowers today and properly root for a Flaka/Buress 2016 ticket.
