The first season of Comedy Central's The New Negroes concludes Friday night with two episodes, and Open Mike Eagle and Baron Vaughn's show is closing strong with two musical numbers called "Racism 2.0" and "Heaven Application," out now. They're both funny and catchy clips dealing with serious subjects: "Racism 2.0" features guest rapper Sammus as a reporter investigating racism in all its insidious forms, while "Heaven Application" digs into unshakable debt with guest vocals from Percy Miracles.
