One of my lil homies from work put me on to Mick’s song “Martyrs” …and I listened to that song like 22 times in a row. The video was pretty provocative…his words had some gravity, and he was putting on for his city – but talking about the ills of the “go”.
Mick Jenkins – “Martyrs”
I downloaded his project “Water(s)” – he features some pretty good singers…Joey Bada$$ makes an appearance on a record as well.
Another good song on his album was “Dehydration”….the soundscape for his album has a very dark tone…very contemplative. This kid is definitely not about popcorn rap. Recently he did a record with Super BWE in regards to the current police state called “Treat Me”…which in my mind has a modern day Chuck D & PE feel to it – just sans the the boombap.
Give this man a listen. – I thought enough about him to write about him – so that should tell you something.
