Open Mike Eagle – Doug Stamper f. Hannibal Buress (Video)

blame it on Shake June 24, 2014

When he’s not performing in bowling alleys (or laundromats for that matter), Chicago-born, Los Angeles-living emcee Open Mike Eagle continues to roll out pieces from his recently-released Dark Comedy LP. Fresh off breaking down the history of modern dance, Mike Eagle teams up with comedian Hannibal Buress for the official video of “Doug Stamper.”

“Hannibal and I commissioned secret focus groups on Black Twitter to come up with some raps that would be genuinely helpful. There’s a vicious rumor going around that Amy Poehler wrote Hannibal’s verse, but that’s unfair and subtly racist. In memory of the God Doug Stamper.” – Open Mike Eagle

Along with the video, Mike also announced a slew of upcoming North American tour dates. Check em out below and be sure to catch his live set if you get a chance.
