As a long time fan from Co Flow days I came for the EL-P deep dive, & felt I was eavesdropping on a conversation between two good friends!
Truly excellent stuff, insightful & funny too!

This is what Talib Kweli probably thinks he’s doing with his podcast. Mike Eagle gets down to the granular detail we want to all hear. DOPE DOPE DOPE.

Unique Approach to Interviewing a hip-hop legend

The concept is genius. Don’t have a different guest every week and skim over their career. Find one, have them on every week, and take the time necessary to fully evaluate and dig into their work on different projects, and get their unique perspectives on them. In Prince Paul, you have a guest with longevity and a wide variety of work to really get your teeth into and the format allows subject and interviewer to build a rapport that makes for some stimulating conversations. Open Mike Eagle is to be congratulated for coming up with the concept and executing it so well. As OME says in the last episode of the first series, there aren’t many other people who have the career that deserves this sort of scrutiny, which may limit the potential for further series, but in El-P he has found another worthy subject for the second run, and I look forward to hearing the results.
