Open Mike Eagle, Unapologetic Art Rap [Mush Records]

I spend entirely too much time with record reviews attempting to discover the binary code within the notes. In listening to Open Mike Eagle’s debut Unapologetic Art Rap, I’ve written and rewritten close to a thousand words on its rap criticisms, potential rap impact, his influences, how his influences function as post-modernist art, how art rap is an actual genre, how art rap is not a genre but an elaborate inside joke and on and on.
