A lot is happening for indie *it*-rapper Open Mike Eagle. In addition to his new TV show The New Negroes debuting on Comedy Central, his online comedy “Community College Hogwarts”-style show Live From WZRD premiering Thursday and his recent What Happens When I Try to Relax EP, this Friday, March 29 Mike comes to the Turf Club with Sammus and Video Dave!
Before the show, Mike spoke with longtime friend Chaz Kangas, host of Go 95.3‘s First Impressions. They talk everything from Mike’s wrestling endeavors to the difference between the indie-rap grind, working with multi-national media conglomerates, misunderstood lyrics and rap beefs they wish happened!
The New Negroes with Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle, debuts on Friday, April 19 at 10:00 p.m. CT on Comedy Central with a simulcast on BET.
