Ballerinas always gotta enter

That gibberish flow

Always rap in socks. It’s key.

And finally, the mic drop. Badass.

With the success of his first rap single Buress decided to expand his brand and teamed up with Skrillex and Ryan Phillippe to perform a dubstep version of “Gibberish Rap”. May 2013.

And Now The Gifs

Ryan Phillippe = Secret Hypeman Extraordinaire

Yes, that’s an actual lyric.

Ballerinas make everything better.


Ryan Phillippe does the head bob justice.

4. The Battle Rap

This time, on the Oddball Comedy, Buress brought all the stops, inviting Bun B to come out on stage and make fun of him in front of tens of thousands of people. And was it ever worth it.

Let The Gifs BEGIN!

Bun B asks the tough questions

Of course the ballerinas are there!

Bun B wants to know where the hate is coming from.

But Hannibal knows that true rappers are big in Norway.

Bun B puts it best.
