WATCH: Open Mike Eagle Gives Us a Preview of “The New Negroes” with “Unfiltered” Video
The new OME track arrives with an Office Space–esque video and dizzying Danny Brown verses—not to mention an entire TV series.
Have you heard? Open Mike Eagle is finally getting his own TV show, co-helmed by actor Baron Vaughn. Not quite the Dark Comedy Late Show or Rapper Warrior Ninja, The New Negroes will shine a spotlight on up-and-coming and established comedians and musicians, and every episode will end with a brand new collaborative video with OME and a featured rapper.
Today, Comedy Central shared the first of such collaborative videos, a chaotic two minutes featuring a soul-sucked Mike Eagle working a drab nine-to-five and an over-caffeinated, chaotic-evil Danny Brown busting out of the rapper’s mouth to deliver a few verses. It’s weird! It’s violent! It’s most definitely good television!
Watch the video below, and check out the first episode of The New Negroes this Friday, April 19 on Comedy Central.
