Hannibal Buress is making good use of his time stuck in quarantine. On Thursday, Hannibal released a new song titled "Judge Judy," featuring Ron Lamont with production from Chrome Hearts. Lamont was also featured on "We're Playing Basketball Remix," the song Buress dropped earlier this year prior to NBA All-Star Weekend.
On "Judge Judy," Hannibal pays homage to everyone's favorite afternoon judge, born Judy Sheindlin, who announced in March, that she was going to end her long-running CBS show in 2021 after a 25-year run.
"I've had a 25-year-long marriage with CBS, and it's been successful," Sheindlin told DeGeneres on her show Ellen. "Next year will be our 25th season, silver anniversary, and CBS, I think, sort of felt, they wanted to optimally utilize the repeats of my program, because now they have 25 years of reruns. So what they decided to do was to sell a couple of years' worth of reruns."
"'Judge Judy' is an examination of Judy's longevity and tenacity in a simple format," Buress said. "5200 episodes of the same scenarios."
"Why do people go on the show knowing that there's a good chance of being berated?" he wondered. "Does their fandom blind them so much that they're willing to be embarrassed on national television by the legend? What happens when they return to their hometowns? Do they ever live it down or is it a stain on them forever? Chrome Sparks killed the beat. Ron Lamont did an amazing job on the hook."
