Cobra Commander By Open Mike Eagle Feat. Danny Brown

Open Mike Eagle has a new album out called “4NML HSPTL” and you should go buy it right now.
Mike has been one of the more prolific artists over the last few years dropping albums, ep’s and random tracks all over the place, all while maintaining a very high level of quality. The new album is no different. Good shit all around.
So , peep this song he did with Danny Brown. Also, Keep an eye out for music he and I will be making in the future. The wheels are rolling. I’m psyched. Yeah.

5ree thinkers By Open Mike Eagle

My homeboy Open Mike Eagle is one productive motherfucker. in the last few years, he’s released 2 full length albums , and few free ep’s all while touring pretty consistently. He’s also got a little something brewing with your truly that I’m very excited about. But that’s not happening yet, so for now, enjoy this new song off his “Rent Party extension” EP. This, right here is my joint. If you like it, go download the whole ep from here:

Frozen Sunlight by Billy Woods Feat Open Mike Eagle and Marq Spekt

It’s been a good month for rappers I like/work with doing songs together. Earlier Illogic, Marq Spekt and open mike eagle did a song and now, Open Mike Eagle and Spekt join Billy Woods for a non-album track banger produced by Willie Green.
In case you were unaware, Billy Woods released his album “History will absolve me” earlier this week. It’s literally the only thing I’ve been listening to. I can’t express enough how much you should buy this album. It’s on I-tunes or available at .

I’m not about to write a review of the album but I can say it’s a real album. In the sense that it was made with consistent themes, it ties together musically, and Woods seems to have an overall concept behind the entire thing. To say that kind of thing is rare nowadays is an understatement. Not to get corny but this kind of thing is art. I generally hate that word and think throwing it around when discussing rap is extremely lame but there’s no other way to put it. It’s not always easily digestible but it’s something you can go back to , time and time again and pull something new out of. So, yeah, if you like hard rap with a head on it’s shoulders that somehow manages to be not at all nerdy, this will be your shit.

As I said, this song was a track that didn’t make the album and , that alone, is a testament to how strong this album is. Peep it.

Rent Party Revolution (Remix) By Open Mike Eagle
In a continuing effort to spread the word of Open Mike Eagle, here’s a cool remix by Taco Neck for one of the joints of his album “Rappers will die of natural causes”. I like the original but this one takes it in a different direction that works really well.
Also, Mike and I are working on some music in the future and I’m pretty psyched about it. So, by association, you should be too.

No Body Nose by Open Mike Eagle (prod. Loden)
If you read this blog, you know there are very few new Mc’s I champion, but Open Mike Eagle is one of those guys. Pretty much everything he’s dropped over the last few years had been dope. Yesterday he put out his new album “Rappers will die of natural causes” on Hellfyre records. He was kinda enough to let me post up this song as my song of the day. So, yes, this is a sort of “exclusive” , if you will.

Check it out and when you’re done, go to Itunes and buy the whole album. you won’t be disappointed.

Also, I definitely plan on working with mike in the future so keep an eye out for that.
