Open Mike Eagle ft. Kool A.D. - Informations

  • Artist: Open Mike Eagle
  • Track: Informations
  • Producer: Elos
  • Album: Dark Comedy

Admittedly, I've been sleeping on Open Mike Eagle for the past few years. When Passion Of The Weiss placed his 2011 album, Rappers Will Die of Natural Causes, number eight on their "Top 50 Albums of 2011," besting Frank Ocean, A$AP Rocky and more, it should've woke me right up. When he came onto the This Week in Hype podcast, that should have been my alarm clock. Now, after watching his new Informations video featuring former Das Racist member Kool A.D., I'd have to pop a dozen Ambien to stay snoozing. The quirky and colorful visuals, directed by Jay Brown with added effects by Paul Mailihoff, is a great contrast to the lyrics that playfully represent this generation's massive amount of information absorption. So if you've also been napping, Informations is a great place to start your Open Mike Eagle musical journey. Don't say we didn't try to wake you up.

And I'd like to hear more from the trifecta of E-40, Yo Gotti and NBA YoungBoy.
