“Put my soul into this… we finally here.”
Omen’s Elephant Eyes LP is out now!!!!!! And yes, each of those exclamation points were completely necessary. When you’ve been waiting three years for an album to arrive, you start to get a little antsy – or, completely forget about it. But let’s be real here, it doesn’t matter when you became a fan of the Chicago emcee/producer – be it Afraid of Heights, his Dilla-inspired A Glorious Cool EP, or anything in between – the moment you did, his official debut was added to your “most-anticipated” list. And I refuse to believe there’s another outcome.
The time has finally arrived, and O doesn’t disappoint. At 11 tracks, Elephant Eyes kicks off with a “Motion Picture” – which you might remember from Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers mixtape – and continues the narrative through tracks with guest features from J. Cole, Bas, CJ Hamilton, and Ari Lennox.
