Rapper Open Mike Eagle, who has built a reputation for himself as a rap vanguard with oddball tendencies, comes through with a conceptual contribution of his own with his latest album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream. The project is largely inspired by his experiences at Chicago's notorious Robert Taylor Homes. Collaborations are few and far between on Brick Body Kids Still Daydream, with only two guest appearances throughout the album's 12 tracks, one of them being Philly rep Has-Lo's contribution to the album's lead single "95 Radios," which the rapper also co-produced alongside boardsman Toy Light. Hard to express when the world is listening/Hard when you're sure that the world is not," Has-Lo laments on the song's opening verse, while Open Mike Eagle tackles the hook and spills off an off-kilter flow during his own stanza.

Our take on ‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream,’ the latest from the Chicago-born rapper. By. Christopher R. Weingarten. Motormouthed rapper Open Mike Eagle has gotten raves for albums that explore the comedy of neurosis. His new one, easily his headiest, is a concept LP built around Chicago’s Robert Taylor Homes, a famously mismanaged housing project destroyed 10 years ago. Eagle impressionistically inserts himself into events real and imagined. We live in a space that should have never existed, he raps.

Open Mike Eagle has spent this decade distinguishing himself as one of the greatest underground rappers in Los Angeles. On his fifth solo record, the tightly wound Brick Body Kids Still Daydream, Eagle reverts back to a childhood in Chicago spent partly in the notorious Robert Taylor Homes, at one time the largest block of public housing projects in the country. Over 12 songs, Eagle explores our relationship to physical spaces and traces the slow, accretive drip of American racism as it flows through city councils and federal housing policy. He’s an inimitable writer: On Brick Body Complex,.

Open Mike Eagle is one of the few artists that seems to improve with every release, and just when you thought he couldn’t get better than a full collaboration with Paul White on yesteryear’s Hella Personal Film Festival, he does just that. It helps that the various producers manage to make unique beats that still fit in with the album’s general aesthetic. In a musical landscape where loudness sells, Brick Body KidsArguably the best hip hop album of the year, definitely the most thoughtful. Open Mike Eagle never ceases to amaze me, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream is the most impeccable, fantastic masterpiece from start to finish. there's not a single track on this album that i really did not like at all.

Mike Eagle brings the Robert Taylor Homes back to life-literally, with arms and eyes and a head like the dome of a stadium-and fights until the last brick is made to crumble. As always, Mike slips in and out of various grey areas; on the opener legendary iron hood, he raps, you think it's all good, but it's really a gradient. Brick Body Kids Still Daydream is his most overtly political work to date, and puts to use all the dazzling technical skills he's perfected over more than a decade at the forefront of rap’s underground. In chaotic and increasingly fractured times, it has a few crucial things to bring to your attention.

The success of Brick Body Kids is that its world is not populated by its creator alone; Mike Eagle manages to balance the sense that he is speaking for many with the certainty that no one else could do it quite the same way. It’s a rare feat to be able to take a verse in the direction of I’m grown so I’m always disgusted/ All these discussions online is mayonnaise versus mustard/ Mayonnaise people think French can’t be trusted/ Mustard people think eggs is all busted (from Daydreaming in the Projects ) and maintain the listener’s attention, let alone their credence.

Anybody get a copy of this that isn't warped af?
Phenade
I’ve got one that is very slightly warped, but still plays fine besides a few pops on side b. It didn’t include a download code, however. Did yours come with one?
Oso
I just posted the same question on reddit - I have received 3 copies from 2 different spots, and all 3 are some of the worst warps I have ever seen.Edit: now I have 4 warped pink copies
Gholbirdred
my copy is pink with some light green cloudiness - is this a new pressing? looks almost like it would glow in the dark

WHY are none of these for sale????? -
Zamo
No problems at all. The mastering sounds the same as the CD/WEB release, which is unfortunately to be expected. But pressing is DEAD quiet. No surface noise at all, very impressed.
Androwyn
Unfortunately, unlike the previous poster, I did not have a good experience with this pressing. Lots of non-fill (often a problem with these silly coloured pressings) and distortion throughout. It's a great album - I wish they would just put it out on good old black vinyl.
Tansino
Me too man! Sound is average, but non-fill in several places makes a loud scratching sound. I bought two copies. Both the same.
Uleran
Excellent mastering, clean pressing, unique color and the music is fantastic. This was in my top 3 hip hop albums of 2017 and probably my favorite Mike Eagle release.

If anybody is selling the oxblood variant I would be more than happy to buy! Thank you!
