An 'art rap' musician from Chicago, Michael W. Eagle II is Open Mike Eagle. A member of the Hip-Hop collective Project Blowed, Mike is now making his name on his own. A lover of Cartoon Network and a host on Comedy Central's The New Negroes, along with musical influences including They Might Be Giants, it's clear Mike has a strong sense of humour amongst his seemingly dark sound.
"Armed with a caustic wit and a poetic eye, Open Mike Eagle builds... a diverse and singular piece of contemporary hip-hop. He’s long been an advocate for the wealth of diversity in the black experience in hip-hop, wielding the morose truth-telling aesthetic of stand-up comedy to bring levity to the often tragic circumstances of his social commentary." - Pitchfork
