His book, Higher, which follows the race to build the world’s tallest skyscraper, was also featured in a History Channel documentary.

Open Mike Eagle
Open Mike Eagle is a Los Angeles-based, Chicago bred, hip hop artist, who coined the term “Art Rap” to describe some of his music. He’s released four albums and five EP’s as a solo artist and collaborated with groups like Swim Team and Thirsty Fish, on another five. Fun fact: In 2012 he participated and co-authored as study that found increased brain activity while freestyle rapping. That, my friends, is cool.
