This week we welcomed acclaimed art-rap pioneer and experimental hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where artists tell the story behind why their favorite tracks are their favorites and explain what these songs mean to them.

 

We talked about Kanye, Common, psychology, Chicago, rap freestyling techniques, and spoiling the endings to movies.
