Flying Lotus performed on the second episode of the great comedian Hannibal Buress’ new Comedy Central show Why? With Hannibal Buress, and he recently announced that he’d become the show’s new in-house DJ. I’m pretty sure that makes Buress the first TV host to have a DJ instead of a bandleader since Chris Rock made Grandmaster Flash a part of his HBO show in the late ’90s. On last night’s episode of the show, FlyLo was on the show, and he brought some of his L.A. avant-rap braintrust with him, as Pitchfork points out. The fast, adventurous rapper Open Mike Eagle performed his track “Ziggy Starfish (Anti-Anxiety Raps)” on the show while Thundercat noodled authoritatively and funkily behind him and FlyLo was on the decks. Check out the performance below.
