Unapologetic Art Rap is the debut studio album by American hip hop artist Open Mike Eagle. It was released on Mush Records in 2010.[7]

Reception[edit]

Writing for Potholes in My Blog, Ali Elabbady gave the album 3.5 stars out of 5, stating that "The production is definitely a highlight" and "Mike's performance is definitely noteworthy as well."[6] Blake Gillespie of Impose Magazine called it "the finest representations of taxonomic boom bap rap".[5]

Kevin Jones of Exclaim! said, "Quirky, laid-back, slice-of-life rhymes littered with wide-ranging pop culture references bounce from the absolutely banal to the surprisingly political, like the no day-job dreams of 'I Rock' juxtaposed with the corrosive blaxploitation denunciations heard on 'Unapologetic.'"[4]
