Open Mike Eagle goes pro wrestling in new ‘No Selling’ video.

Open Mike Eagle’s trenchant new album ‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’ is out now on Mello Music Group and has been met with across-the-board raves. The new record, which breathes new life into Chicago’s fallen Robert Taylor Homes housing project.

Today, Mike is premiering the video for “No Selling (Uncle Butch Pretending It Don’t Hurt),” a wrestling-themed video that stars Kimmy Gatewood from Netflix’s G.L.O.W, as well as professional wrestlers Trauma and Human Tornado. “I gotta keep a façade / I gotta play it cool / Like when you with a girl and she go away to school,” raps Mike, using a wrestling metaphor (“selling”, or playing up, the pain inflicted by an opponent) to interrogate the concept of masculinity.   Watch ‘No Selling‘ below.
