Hey everybody! I’m Anthony and I’m one of the new bloggers on here. I’m currently a freshman with an undeclared major (although I’m leaning towards Electrical Engineering… fun) and pretty much what I love listening to is hip hop. Don’t get me wrong, I love all types of music and believe everyone should explore genres they haven’t tried out, but at the end of the day, hip hop is just something I can listen to for hours and not get bored of.
Open Mike Eagle is a rapper who grew up in Chicago and who is part of the rap collective Hellfyre Club. Open Mike has been in the music game for a while now, and has gained a huge following in the underground scene. This guy is pretty unique in how he approaches music, even dubbing his own music as “Art Rap”. He dropped his 7th LP, Dark Comedy, back in June and it received very positive reviews among many music critics. You can listen to that here.
Open Mike Eagle has had a spectacular year in terms of his career, but instead of sitting back he’s released this new song, “Late Show”. Boasting some solid production from Exile, “Late Show” features Open Mike Eagle simply going hard for four minutes straight. Even though I’m fresh off that new Run The Jewels, I’d definitely say that this one of the best songs I’ve heard in a minute. Stream below.
