Mikey Maybe – Honey+Bread

Mikey Maybe - Honey+BreadFans of Pigeon John take note, Mikey Maybe has arrived. It feels as though a whole fresh manifestation of the self-aware culture-rap variety has dawned over the last several months. Honey+Bread is a watermark of this variety. Observe a complex interplay of standard rap norms inflected through a lattice of anomie, apathy, and yearning. Under closer analysis, the record could just as easily be called Search Party, in that our protagonist, Mikey Maybe, spends the length of the record in hot pursuit of himself, looking to girls and God and society for a faithful mirror. I realize this is a rather sober review for a record as hilarious as Honey+Bread, but I’m confident that upon closer examination, most will recognize the genuine art underlying the comedy, which is a certified mark of a good comedian and a good writer. But don’t call it comedy rap.
