Open Mike Eagle has dropped a new song called “Gold Gloves”, which appears on Mello Music Group’s upcoming Bushido compilation album. Stream it below.
The track is produced by Michigan producer The Lasso, who laces OME with a spacy beat and hypnotic bassline. “I brought a glitched-out Moog, a circling bassline, and a bag of plucky percussion, and did what we came to do,” The Lasso said in a statement. Meanwhile, Mike raps in a chanting flow.
“Stretching out my arms, focusing my chi,” he raps. “Concentrating hard, can’t remember how / Swear I knew before.”
“Gold Gloves” is the third preview of Bushido. Previously, Mello Music Group released Joell Ortiz, Namir Blade, Stalley & Solemn Brigham’s “Black Rock” and Oddisee’s “No Trouble”. Other featured artists include Quelle Chris, Murs, Homeboy Sandman, Kool Keith, and B-Real.
