Reissue of the long unavailable second album by highly acclaimed rapper Open Mike Eagle,soon to be seen hosting the Comedy Central TV show The New Negroes. Features several tracks that are amongst the most popular in his live set.
In 2011 LA upstart rap label Hellfyre Club (Subsidiary of Alpha Pup) released Open Mike Eagle’s “Rappers Will Die of Natural Causes”. Widely considered an indie-rap watermark, the LA Times said of the album:”the Los Angeles-based Project Blowedian has carved out a singular niche. He’s analytical, sardonic, political, and he manages not to take himself seriously despite taking everything seriously.”
From dark themes like morality and race relations, Mike managed to draw out some of his most imaginative and witty work. And with features like Rhymesayers Entertainment’s P.O.S. and art rap godfather MC Paul Barman, it was the release that put Open Mike Eagle into the national rap conversation.
