Open Mike Eagle Releases New Song ‘Neighborhood Protection Spell (Lana Del Biden Nem)’

    Open Mike Eagle has released a new song called ‘Neighborhood Protection Spell (Lana Del Biden Nem)’. The new track arrives with a visual directed and edited by Ryan Calavano. Check it out below.

    “When I wrote this song the world was not on fire yet,” the rapper said in a statement about the track. “I had felt subtle attacks on Blackness from Joe Biden and other public figures. Notions that were harmful about authenticity. Notions that called our behavioral and consumption choices into question without any reference to the historical context that they are couched in. I made this song as a spell to ward off subtle social attacks at Blackness. I put a lot in it to make sure it works.”

    Open Mike Eagle released his most recent studio album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream, back in 2017. Last week, Mike launched his own podcast network, Stony Island Audio.
