Open Mike Eagle pleads his case in divorce court in a new visual for “Bucciarati,” featuring Kari Faux. In the music video, Eagle finds himself arguing opposite Bojack Horseman’s Paul F. Tompkins in a dimly lit courtroom and later the judge’s chambers. The pair take turns lip-syncing rhymes from the track back and forth, with occasional interjections from the judge, played by trumpeter Jordan Katz — lip-synced as well of course.

On “Bucciarati,” the Chicago-born rapper works through the feeling of watching his life unravel and being helpless to keep it together. The video flips that sadness on its head, turning the song into a darkly comic twist on crime procedurals as the two adversaries trade blows in the form of verses.

This isn’t the first time Eagle and Tompkins have come together. The pair also appeared on the Wits Radio game show “Impossible Choices”, and Eagle has been a guest of Tompkins improv podcast, “Spontaneanation with Paul F. Tompkins” several times before.

“Bucciarati” is the first single from Eagle’s upcoming full-length project Anime, Trauma and Divorce, which is on track to release October 16 through his label AutoReverse Records. This album is Eagle’s first in three years and will mark a confessional return for the artist: delving into what Eagle has cited as the most challenging year of his life, including bouts of depression and the end of his marriage.

Check out the video above, and in other music news, Tyga has brought YG and Saweetie on for his last track “Money Mouf.”
