1. Open Mike Eagle – “Celebrity Reduction Prayer” (prod. by Oddisee) (AUDIO).

    Quality new sounds from Open Mike Eagle and Oddisee from the forthcoming Mello Music Group compilation, Persona . Mike’s take on the contemporary cult of personality and celeb worship rides some well placed electric piano notes as his delivery alternately rises in intensity and recedes with one of his customary catchy sing-song hooks (which may or may not be swiped/inspired from an alt rock tune of yore we’re not familiar with – someone out there edumacate us if you know). Also serves as a nice complement to OME’s recent A Special Episode Of EP – which is also recommended (see below). Free DL .
