Open Mike Eagle retains the haunting vibe of previous single “Nightmares” for his second leak off the forthcoming Rappers Will Die Of Natural Causes. The difference here, though, is that the energy has been ramped up considerably for “Why Pianos Break.” You can partially thank guest P.O.S. for that. When he shows up for the second verse, he storms over the militaristic beat and attacks it while Mike Eagle spits with a more melodic, less abrasive flow. If anyone decides to make some kind of hip-hop horror movie, this should absolutely be on the soundtrack.
