Mello Music group is set to drop their new compilation Persona next week, so we’re happy present another single from it. “Celebrity Reduction Prayer” features playful and transcendent piano chops from Oddisee, that build throughout the song with added synths and guitars. Open Mike Eagle flows effortlessly as always, waxing poetic about general celebrity culture and the ills that can come from it. Open Mike puts it perfectly; “Watch me smash all of these idols, got my own heavyweight titles. There’s no upper-tier, we’re all peers unless ya’ll want to be rivals”
We previously featured the pensive collaboration titled “Requiem” by Phonte & Oddisee. Other artists and producers featured on the label compilation include Apollo Brown, L’Orange, Rapper Big Pooh, Red Pill, Quelle Chris, Masta Ace, Oh No, Kool Keith, yU, Nottz and others. Mello Music Group’s compilation Persona will be available March 10th. You can pre-order it on iTunes now.
