On his last album Anime, Trauma, and Divorce Chicago-bred/LA-based rapper Open Mike Eagle gave us rare a glimpse into his innermost thoughts and feelings. As the album title suggests he was processing quite a bit in the midst of a pandemic. Having bared his soul Mike now seems to be signaling he’s back to rappin’ rappin’ on his latest release Component System With The Auto Reverse, which drops Oct. 7th via Auto Reverse Records.
CSWTAR features stellar bars from Open Mike Eagle and his comrades Video Dave and Steel Rift. The production duties are handled by a slate of top-tier beat makers including Diamond D, Quelle Chris, and Madlib. In this week’s episode Demone Carter, Nate LeBlanc, and David Ma talk to their friend and podcast benefactor about the new album, lawless 7-11 parking lots, and battling supernatural enemies.
Also, Open Mike Eagle WORLD PREMIERS a couple of new joints from the CSWTAR. Come for the banter stay for the beats!
