Thanks to superstars like Biggie To Kanye, religious pendants have always been the rage in hip-hop. Yet, on Openmic’s latest single, the Nashville native takes the road less traveled and is instead “Talking To A Jesus Piece.” Rather literally.
Speaking from both points of view, listeners are taken on a journey through the rise and fall of a rapper who finds morale worth in a dangling medallion, atop a worldly instrumental from !LLMind’s BKFW project. The track is engaging, insightful and gives and interesting spin to the clout typically associated with jams about jewelry.
But, as an artist who’s always provided more than the average MC, that’s really all we should be expecting from ‘Mic at this point and look forward to hearing more of on his upcoming For The Rebels 2 project.
