Open Mike Eagle lets us know about his upcoming EP.
Raps For When It’s Just You and The Abyss
Sometimes you catch yourself staring over the edge, looking into the nothingness. The new single from Open Mike Eagle catches you at a moment between yourself and the chasm, part regret, part social musings.
The new single has a personal touch. This is the part in the show where the house lights drop and the spotlight falls dead center stage. You know the performance is coming to a close, but it wouldn’t be so sweet without a jarring finale. “IÂ have abandonment issues. i almost called it that. produced by lo-phi. shout out to broken social scene. shout out to method man,” says Â Open Mike Eagle.
After being named LA Weekly 2014 Rapper of the Year and having his newest album, Dark Comedy, named to “best of” lists from USA Today, Rolling Stone, andÂ Spin, Open Mike Eagle is bringing us A Special Episode.
