Open Mike Eagle has been a unique talent in the underground for years now, and his talents never fail to impress. Moreover, he just released a new single titled “WFLD 32” alongside Eshu Tune (better known as Hannibal Buress), as well as frequent rap collaborators Video Dave and STILL RIFT. Overall, this is quite a woozy, often comical, but nonetheless engaging piece of abstract-tinged hip-hop with a lot of sharp lines and descriptions. Most importantly, each MC comes through with their own mood and approach, whether it’s in lyrical or performance terms. In addition, the cut boasts production from Kenny Segal, who recently teamed up with billy woods for the excellent LP Maps.

Furthermore, the beat here is led by some ghostly and dusty piano key loops, enveloping the track in a hazy cloud. With warm and similarly lo-fi boom-bap drums with a slower tempo, it creates a languid but laidback atmosphere. Of course, sonic pallets like this mean that the lyrics take center stage, and the MCs here don’t slouch on that metric. Open Mike Eagle talks about his desire to be the best in the game and proves his chops with intricate rhyme schemes and clever turns of phrase. Eshu Tune brings some vivid and nostalgic bars, whereas Video Dave and STILL RIFT come through with some slightly more cold-blooded and rough deliveries that provide a nice contrast.

Meanwhile, this is an exciting track considering that Mike is following up his last album very soon. Apparently this is a single for Open Mike Eagle’s next project, another triumph of ghetto engineering, which is believed to come out in August of this year.

[Intro: Open Mike Eagle]
Blah blah blah
One two one two blah
Blah blah blah, Blah blah blah
Check one, yo

[Chorus: Open Mike Eagle]
Friday’s got the bread but Thursday’s got the energy
Particles move shit but waves got the energy
Pinky can get it cracking but Brain’s got the memory
(One two, one two)
Friday’s got the bread but Thursday’s got the energy

[Verse 1: Open Mike Eagle]
I’m hating them turns in Laurel Canyon
I’m stranded, which side is I’m on
Susan Sarandon is candid
These brothers talk shit then they abandon, it’s rancid
And I’m still trying to get paid like Ed O’Bannon
You would think that they fired me from a cannon
I did the Triple Lindy then I landed
I started rocking simply then expanded
This execution’s iffy but I planned it
I protect it if it gives me an advantage
Still want to be the greatest MC on the planet

Yeah, ’cause I’m immature
If I can name my own sicknesses then it’s cured
I’m finished at high 90-percentage pure
COVID making it impossible to finish tour

[Verse 2: Eshu Tune]
Rocket League addiction, need a brand new engine
Team player, gotta perfect my speed boost, flip or stay now
Move later, jump back into the river
After making a whole big deal ’bout not swimming
My folks from the ‘Sip Like K.R.I.T
Memories of our solar summers from when I was a kid
Might cop some land out there just to chase the feeling again
Caught on the hook, fill up the cooler with catfish
Proceed to grill ’em with kin

Now slow this beat to BPM twenty-four-a
Grind my teeth down ’til the nerves are showing
Use to rap gibberish with Explora Dora
At Grog Shop, Cleveland hope was [?]
Spongebob in Miami, Knitting Factory had Alvin
All the shows had energy, sound quality was ragged
Used to shoplift belts from Morrisville’s TJ Max
That’s a feeling by, yeah, there’s the end of my rap
Eshu Tune

[Chorus: Open Mike Eagle]
Friday’s got the bread but Thursday’s got the energy
Particles move shit but waves got the energy
Pinky can get it cracking but Brain’s got the memory
Friday’s got the bread but Thursday’s got the energy

[Verse 3: Still Rift]
My grudge is generational curse
Swear on the books we bound
My people generational first
Ring like the hooks we found ourselves
Repeating ourselves, repeating ourselves, repeating points
Straight lines curve directly to hell
And back with gasoline drawls my flaws are focused fact for principle
My interest grows like giants from the miniscule
Group think to individual
I’m caught inside like prizes in the cereal
If Mikey likes it, life is immaterial
The cloth we’re cut from tailors to the criminal
Smoother than the operator
Hater from the genesis of Genesis, what I can’t dance
Who takes me home at the end of this, a fire starter
Carrie holds the torch ’cause she’s my daughter
(Ahuh, ay)

[Verse 4: Video Dave]
I’m more official than a whistle-blow
I tore a tissue with my grizzled nose
Ignore the misuse of my little home
A clean place to sleep and shit and store my brittle bones (Ay)
I seen Hakeem do the Dream Shake
I seen Raheem make the mistake of trusting Bishop
I seen that Bishop had two pistols in his waistline
Continuity mistakes make my brain go haywire
Hey, I’m trying to concentrate
My [?] sincerely like to thank you
Do therapists really say ‘hey now that’s a breakthrough’
Or is that just some TV shit
When I grow up I want to be the shit
Top cat close friends get to call him TC
Knock back a couple stems and watch some olden TV
Why are you grillin’ me, melting out the chill in me
Santa tried to plant a camera deep inside the chimney
But he ain’t realize Rudolph is a spy, Blitzen’s getting high
Smoking mistletoe
I’m more official than a whistle-blow
