The Southern Creator, OPENMIC is back! Continuing to deliver new music as the hip-hop world awaits his highly anticipated project For the Rebels 2, the sequel to last summer’s critically acclaimed For the Rebels, this time he drops a jewel with his new record Talking to a Jesus Piece.
On this captivating record OPENMIC holds a discussion with a diamond encrusted personification of glory. His consciousness is paralleled with a young relevance that must be heard to fully understand. The playback value on this banger is as high as ever, as he has a conversation with one of hip hop’s iconic symbols - a Jesus Piece.
“I wrote this song at like 3AM one morning after checking out Illmind’s BFKW beat tape. I ended up writing to every beat that night on first listen. It was one of those moments when I was in a zone and genuinely inspired. And this song came out really dope because it was a twist on a common theme in the culture today. Everybody is doing religion flips and rocking jesus pieces, but not many are taking it much further than that. That’s what this record provides.” - OPENMIC
