Open Mike Eagle and producer Paul White have announced a joint LP, Hella Personal Film Festival, set to drop March 25. Along with the announcement, the duo dropped the album’s first single, “Check To Check.”
Open Mike always delivers some witty, thought-provoking bars, and the theme doesn’t change with “Check To Check,” where the Chicago-born rapper delivers commentary of the never-ending hand-in-phone culture that’s blossomed with the growth of technology. Instead of living life while occasionally browsing his phone for whatever reason, he’s living the opposite and using life as a filler between each time he enter the reality of his phone. Can’t say I haven’t been guilty of living that way before.
Hell Personal Film Festival will be released via Mello Music Group. The album will have features from Aesop Rock and Hemlock Ernst, and “Check To Check” can be streamed below. Download the song for free and pre-order the album on Bandcamp.
