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.
Last we heard from Mick, he had dropped off the track "Leonidas", the third single from his forthcoming project The Water(s). He also popped up recently as a feature on Alex Wiley's new single "Own Man."
Today he vibes solo on a new leak from The Water(s), "Free Nation Rebel Soldier Pt. 2" with production from 6thBoro.
The record shares Mick's life story, starting with his move to Chicago's South Side, where he's resided ever since.
While you're here, we recommend checking out Mick's visual for "Martyrs."
Took some good advice from a couple OGs
Shared the knowledge with my homies

It was always about the growth and development
Never too big, elephant in the room, how could you not notice
