This Week in Hype: Comedy Rap, Poop & More With Open Mike Eagle
Welcome to another episode of the "This Week in Hype" podcast. I'm not saying you have to listen, I'm just saying don't be surprised if you get to heaven and discover god is a huge fan.
This week, I basically dump a bunch of rage and stress on your earholes. So if that seems like the type of thing you'd be interested in, stick around. Also, I bring on the two-and-only Open Mike Eagle to talk about the similarities between comedy and hip-hop...and also poop.
Discussed This Week:
* As always, shouts to Tino for that dope theme song. You should follow Tino and hear Tino's story in full on the podcast.
* I'm moving and stressed the fuck out and I dump some of that stress on y'all because you're welcome.
* Who wants the audio version of me losing my shit on that kid who quit rap? You do? Then you're in luck.
* I bring on Open Mike Eagle to talk about the overlaps between comedy and hip-hop, the genius of Mitch Hedberg, Dr. Dre's overwhelming presence in L.A. hip-hop, poop, fatherhood and much more.
* A hearty thank you to Mike for coming on. You should follow him @Mike_Eagle and check out his "Dark Comedy" album on Bandcamp and various other digital outlets and what not.
* This week's closing song, Open Mike Eagle's "Qualifiers", which also has a pretty amazeballs video.
Oh, and you should definitely subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, unless you suck, then don't.
