Open Mike Eagle – Dark Comedy Morning Show (Short Film & Tour Dates)

Via Fact Magazine: “If you haven’t heard of Chicago rapper Open Mike Eagle yet, ‘Dark Comedy Morning Show’, from his fourth solo album Dark Comedy, is probably the most fitting introduction you’ll get. Described by bullshit music writers like me as “eccentric,” or “idiosyncratic,” Eagle has the distinction of being one of the most interesting rappers around, not because he’s amazingly technically proficient or anything, but because he’s one of the best lyricists in the game and has the audacity to actually have something to say. “Dark Comedy Morning Show” serves as an idiosyncratic distillation of the philosophy and the ethos behind the Open Mike Eagle project, that it’s ‘On that laugh to keep from crying tip.’ ”
