Open Mike Eagle has unveiled his upcoming album, Another Triumph of Ghetto Engineering, set to drop on August 16. This new record comes as a sequel to his last year’s work, Component System With the Auto Reverse. The album highlights a special appearance from Blu, and includes a track titled “A New Rap Festival Called Falling Loud.” Take a listen to the first released track “WFLD 32”—an interesting collaboration with Eshu Tune (also known as Hannibal Buress), Still Rift, and Video Dave.
Open Mike Eagle, commenting on the forthcoming album, said: “The relentless hustle in the ghetto never ceases! These tracks represent a creative response to those who overlook us, a defiant ‘screw you’, and a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to those who show concern for our existence. Pay heed to the song names! This is yet another victory of ghetto innovation! I took that cover picture. That’s my mother’s hand!” See his upcoming tour schedule below.
