Hannibal Buress is working on a new album, but it’s not a comedy album. According to Buress’ podcast co-host Tony Trimm, Hannibal’s upcoming album will feature original songs. “We already have a few [songs] in mind”, explains Trimm. “We already have half of a Juke song. It’s just a matter of sitting down and crafting it.” Trimm will be handling the project’s production, on what he hopes will be a “quality album.” And they’re hoping to get some famous features on the album. The two performers co-host the popular Handsome Rambler podcast.
This may be Hannibal’s first hip hop album, but its not his first time getting involved in a hip hop project. In addition to appearing in a Chance the Rapper music video, he’s also performed with Open Mic Eagle, Skrillex, Lil Dickey and others. And Tony and Hannibal of course released Gibberish Rap in 2012, which you can listen to below.
Trimm made the announcement in an interview with Mr. Wavvy. Head to the 6:16 mark to hear what Trimm has to say about the upcoming album.
