"One of LA’s smartest young voices" says the LA Times...which the

Mike Eagle wouldnt terribly mind, being born and raised in Chicago
where the painful winters and his uppity grandparents kept him inside
as a youth. He spent his formative years watching alternative music
happen on MTV and hoping to one day be able to audition for the Native
Tongues. As a young adult after graduating with a degree in
Psychology, he did the next best thing and moved to Los Angeles,
joining the Project Blowed collective where he made music and toured
with Busdriver, Aceyalone, Abstract Rude, Nocando and more. He’s also
gained notoriety in the world of comedy by being invited by
professional funny people (Paul F. Tompkins, Hannibal Buress, Matt
Besser/UCB) to rap at their shows. He’d like to be rap’s Kurt Vonnegut
but recognizes that he’d first have to create something as iconic as
the four-stroke illustration of an anus. He practices by releasing rap
albums that delight, entertain, and confuse.
