Open Mike Eagle Talks Uganda, the Indie Rap Illuminati, and the Republican Primaries
Do you guys stick pins into voodoo dolls of will.i.am. and LMFAO?
Mostly, we just practice Kaballah.
You're a politics junkie. What are your impressions of the Republican primaries?
The real freaks are gone: Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry. There were moments where I was scared that they might get the candidacy. Of course, once the debates started you got to see how ridiculous it all was. Rick Perry looks just like Leland Palmer from Twin Peaks and Michelle Bachmann has starched helmet hair.
I didn't understand how you can have a team running a campaign who lets you go on television with starched helmet hair -- it's absolutely baffling. I loved learning about the name that [Dan Savage] coined for Rick Santorum too.
No, they've defined Santorum as the fecal and lube discharge that's often found after anal sex. It's now called Santorum. It's like the second thing that comes up when you Google his name.
Will Herman Cain be on your new album?
I would love to do a song with Herman Cain. He'd have to teach Herman Cain's lessons in pimping and it would work 9-9-9 in. Keep nine hoes on nine avenues at 9 p.m. Every night.
