There are some ideas that you just know are absolute gold from their very conception. Take this one, for example – Adult Swim’s absurdist talk show The Eric Andre Show decided to have a bunch of rappers complete a ridiculous obstacle course, blindfolded, while rapping. It’s called “Rapper Warrior Ninja” and it’s genius.
In the sketch, Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, Open Mike Eagle, Nocando, and Go Dreamer are all forced to rap while walking blindfolded on a plank 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. Oh, and at the end there’s a small paddling pool filled with “snakes.”
It’s hilarious, and it’s also commendable/amazing that all five were good enough sports to go through with it solely for the good of comedy. Check it out above.
Meanwhile, Frank Ocean’s new album Boys Don’t Cry finally got a release date.
