Three and a half years have passed since Papi Jamon dropped entire project. In that time, there has been a shift towards more lyricism in Hip-Hop music.

Produced by SLOT-A (ADD-2, Neak, Mike Schpitz) and featuring R&B vocalist Jay Hollins, this track let’s the world know how great is to be alive and well in Hip-Hop.

Open Mike Eagle: “these songs are movies I’d make if I knew how to make movies. They’re films I’d like to see.” The duo recorded their new album in London and it was unlike anything they had created before. For Open Mike the songs are about being vulnerable, about brown people with rich internal lives, about people dealing with pain. Paul’s music has an emotional core and It was exciting for him to explore these nuanced regions of human emotion and social interaction.
Paul White: The album’s main subject matter is the sensitivities and vulnerabilities we all experience and he explains, “I feel like this is one of the most honest hearted, wide open projects I’ve been a part of. I feel honored to have created backdrops for Mike to paint something so honest over, and with a light sense of humor with it. Music is pure emotion for me and working with an artist who clearly feels the same forms a strong chemical. In a industry full of fake projections, I feel proud that this isn’t.”

What they want and what they need is two different things. Trapbo’ and Shreve take turns slinging their message about the dichotomy between our desires and our necessities over FutureBeats laid back jazzy production. “Tryna change the world but it all starts at home / they tryna make a name, we got shit that needs to be known.”
