Back in May Open Mike Eagle & Paul White dropped their album and collaborative effort Hella Personal Film Festival (Mello Music Group). After releasing a few singles off the album, sharing “Smiling (Quirky Race Doc)” was inevitable. In trying times and situations, the imagery the song projects couldn’t have dropped at a more appropriate moment. With lines like “If not reparations give me free Black therapy / And tell people you’re scared of them, it makes them act scarily” you get an idea of where Open Mike Eagle is heading over those Paul White beats here.
