Don't let the cool control you.

Mick Jenkins has an immaculate method of making somber music that still feels good. His mix of emotional musings continues on "Gwendolynn's Apprehension," the third track on Jenkins' latest album Pieces Of A ManThe moment the melancholy synth flutters across the simple drums, you can surmise which version of Jenkins we'll get on this one. 

The elastic flow of the chorus is reminiscent of something Lupe would have performed on The Cool. Possibly it's Jenkins hint at coolness leading to an ultimate downfall that creates a familiar Fiasco vibe, but the energy is welcomed none the less. He muses about growth by looking at his own actions, and the actions of those around him. At the end of the day, Jenkins elects that fitting in with the cool may not be the ultimate triumph that it's fabled to be.

Quotable Lyrics
We, real cool
We, left school
We, learned late
We, seen scene
We, jazz June
We, die soon
We, die soon
We, die soon with your cool ass
