Warm and relatable raps from the Chicago artist…
Open Eagle Mike - Dark Comedy

Chicago rapper Open Mike Eagle’s fourth album ‘Dark Comedy’ approaches its 13 tracks like a stand-up comedy set, using humour to take on a variety of concerns and issues, from rap stereotypes and wiping his son’s ass to recession and Facebook-logging his favourite sandwiches.

However, the use of humour doesn’t make ‘Dark Comedy’ a spoof album. Eagle’s skill is in being relatable to the listener, approaching issues that could otherwise be interpreted as controversial with a soft-spoken and melodic flow that never comes off as preachy or aggressive.
