Mick Jenkins drops a stunning new track off his upcoming EP "The Wave[s]".


Mick Jenkins hit us with one of the best mixtapes of 2014, The Water[s], and from the sounds of "Alchemy", his follow up EP, Wave[s], will be even better. This is way heavier production than Mick is used to--but, coming from Sacramento's Lee Bannon--it's a welcome change.

Mick is often categorized as conscious rapper, which he is--we're gonna be spending hours untwisting his various water-related metaphors--but he's also got a shuddering flow that will force you to take in his words, even if you shy away from his message. We also can't understate how important this grime-influenced Bannon beat is to Mick's latest career statement. 

If the rest of Wave[s] matches "Alchemy", it'll be one of the biggest stories of 2015. 

Quotable Lyrics

Flooded the market, murdering flows
It's blood on the carpet
A crime scene, gave him the light
Wait 'til I turn on the high beams
Niggas ain't seeing me
