As a mainstay on the underground hip-hop scene, southside Chicago native Open Mike Eagle has attracted a cult following for his alternative hip-hop style blended with introspective and darkly humorous lyricism.
As a member of the West-Coast spoken word and hip-hop collective Project Blowed, Mike established his name on the circuit with the likes of Dumbfoundead and Freedom Fellowship while attending university in LA. It’s here that the MC perfected his craft networking with some of the most prestigious producers and artists in the city and started highly respected underground rap group Thirsty Fish.
In 2017 he released new album Brick City Kids Still Daydream to critical acclaim; the lyricism’s discourse on public housing crises, perceptions of black youth and inner city gentrification was timely for the current American political situation.
