Watch Eric Andre’s “Rapper Warrior Ninja” Sketch With Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Open Mike Eagle
Here’s a pretty good idea for a comedy sketch: A bunch of rappers have to complete a ridiculous obstacle course, blindfolded, while rapping. That’s the idea of “Rapper Warrior Ninja,” a sketch from the next season of the absurdist Adult Swim talk show The Eric Andre Show. Andre and his cohost Hannibal Buress previewed the episode earlier this year at SXSW, but the full thing is online right now, and it is ridiculous. In the sketch, Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Open Mike Eagle, Nocando, and Go Dreamer are all forced to rap while walking on a blindfold as dirty underwear gets in their faces, balls on ropes hit them, and a guy with a giant Q-tip steps in to knock them over. It’s pretty amazing that all five were good enough sports to go through all of this in the name of comedy. Watch it below.
The new season of The Eric Andre Show begins 8/6 at 12 midnight eastern.
