Mick Jenkins Songs

  • Time
    Mick Jenkins has kept a relatively low profile since delivering his critically acclaimed second mixtape The Water[s] at the end of last summer, releasing sparse records since then. As he heads out on the road with Pro Era's Kirk Knight, Saba and No Name Gypsy, he hit us with a new cut today "Time", produced by his go-to OnGaud. There's also a few familiar references here, from water, to the truth, to trees.
  • Touch Me
    Touch Me
    The Purist is a UK-based producer who's had great success collaborating with Danny Brown and Tree in the past. His latest joint track with a rapper is "Touch Me," which showcases precocious Chicago native Mick Jenkins. 
  • 11
    While most would feel it's safe to assume 2014 has been a great year for Mick Jenkins (with the release of his critically acclaimed The Water(s) ) his new track, "11", makes it clear several of the major events and topics of the year are heavy on his mind. 
  • Fate
    Mick Jenkins let The Water[s] sit with us for a good while before dropping any new music. Now that we've had time to let it sink in, and ultimately put "Dehydration" on our year-end list for Hottest Songs, we get some new music from the Chicago native. The rapper flows effortlessly over this saxophone-encumbered beat produced by Ambi Lyrics. It's got a relaxing, late-night jazz vibe.
  • Losin' My Mind
    Losin' My Mind
    Keisza has seen a ton of success with her breakout single "Hideaway", and since then we've slowly become more acquainted with the Canadian singer as she teams up with rappers.
  • Rain
    It's been slightly over a month since we premiered Mick Jenkins stand-out mixtape The Water[s], but with water (and gingerale) being some of Mick's favorite topics, the theme continues today with "Rain." Mick connects with Kaytranada for a lulling beat which samples Missy Elliott's "The Rain," the original of which we included for you to watch below, just because we're nice like that. 
  • Keep It 100
    Keep It 100
    Mick Jenkins has already been entertaining us nonstop for the past week with his great mixtape The Water[s], and now he's back to wow us with another hot track. "Keep It 100" is taken from DJ Ricky Dubs' upcoming EP, Señor Dubs, and also features YC The Cynic.
  • Dehydration
    During our interview with Mick Jenkins leading up to the release of The Water[s], he referenced this song "Dehydration" in particular as one he thought might catch on, so we thought it only appropriate to highlight The Mind-featured record today.
  • Jerome
    When we spoke to Mick Jenkins the other week he expressed an interest to work with his fellow Cinematic Music Group artists, lo and behold, one such collaboration appears on his brand new mixtape The Water[s]. The chemistry between Mick and Joey is real, as the two trade bars over hard-hitting production from Kirk Knight, which also includes a Biggie sample from "Dead Wrong."
  • Lazarus
    It looks like Mick Jenkins is almost ready to drop off his long-awaited follow up to his debut Trees And Truths. The Water[s] has been teased ever since Mick delivered "Martyrs" in December, and today, an official tracklist, cover art, and a release date have been let go, along with this new cut, "Lazarus."
  • Treat Me
    Treat Me
    While Mick Jenkins is keeping The Water[s] tightly under lock and key, he feeds the fans today with a collaboration with Supa Bwe, "Treat Me (Caucasian)". 
  • Realer Than Most
    Realer Than Most
    When Closed Sessions is involved, you can usually guarantee the result is quality music. Today we have more evidence of that, after Mick Jenkins, Dally Auston, NoName Gypsy & Saba all came together at the recording studio in Chicago to record "Realer Than Most" (peep that dope artwork too). The record, produced by OnGaud, opens with a saxophone and spaced out sounds, and maintains the jazzy elements of the sax through out, while Mick takes care of the hook.
  • Forever
    Alex Wiley is someone we've been championing for a minute, with his Club Wiley mixtape leaving quite the impression. Now he's got a new mixtape out, Village Party, which displays his more grown side while keeping the style of production we enjoyed so much on Club Wiley-- experimental, party-worthy and generally upbeat. For that, we can thank producers like Odd Couple, THEMPeople and Hippie Sabotage.
  • Who Else
    Who Else
    Mick Jenkins recently delivered a dope freestyle for the DJ Booth, "Steam", but today he returns to leak a track off his forthcoming project The Water[s]. On "Who Else" we hear some rather experimental production from TJ Osinulu. The producer incorporates rattling, echoing, and female vocal splices to create something a little left-field for Mick. 
  • Showoff Radio (Freestyle)
    Showoff Radio (Freestyle)
    While we just heard him spit a freestyle last week on “Steam”, Chicago rising artist, Mick Jenkins, is back today with another new freestyle for the fans. Stopping by Statik Selktah’s Shade 45 radio station, the Chicago spitta grabbed the mic and flexed his freestylin' abilities over Group Life's "Livin Proof" instrumental. Mick continues to show us why he’s one emcee you need to keep on your radar. Take a listen to him spit his ish above. Thoughts?
  • Steam
    Mick Jenkins is ferocious on the mic, as evidenced by this new freestlye "Steam." This is the latest instalment in DJ Booth freestyle series, and it definitely does not miss. Thankfully, it's available for download.
  • Vibration
    "Vibration" is the second single from emerging Chicagoan Alex Wiley's upcoming sophomore project Village Party, courtesy of Closed Sessions. From the man himself: "'Vibration' is essentially about me deciding to stop feeling wronged by the world. 'Cus like, that shit weak. Take control, yahfillme?"
  • Free Nation Rebel Soldier Pt. 2
    Free Nation Rebel Soldier Pt. 2
    Chicago's Mick Jenkins has been on our radar for a minute now, and we've been digging him so much we featured him on our recent 10 Chicago Players From The Underground list, alongside many Chi-town counterparts.
  • Own Man
    Own Man
    This isn't the first time we've seen Chicago MCs Alex Wiley and Mick Jenkins collaborate, and it won't be the last either. Earlier this month we saw the two team up for the joint effort "Forever", although it remains unclear if they have a full collaborative project coming or if this was a just loose track-- either way, they're back at it on Alex Wiley's new single "Own Man."
  • Forever
    Alex Wiley and Mick Jenkins are two of the most promising young emcees currently operating in the Chicago metropolitan area. "Forever" is their first joint offering, and although brief, it's much doper than your average rap cut. Produced by White Plains, New York producer Sunny Dukes, it was recorded at the Chi's Closed Sessions studio just yesterday. Although very different artists, Wiley's melodic flow complements Jenkins' gruffer delivery nicely, and they both drop knowledge relentlessly. Alex has described his contribution as one of his favorite new verses.
