Fans of Mick Jenkins have been itching for new material from the Chicago lyricist. He's slowly been rolling out leaks off his upcoming project, keeping in theme with The Water[s], it's called Wave[s]. After giving us the Kaytranada-produced "Ps & Qs" almost two months ago, he's kicking off the week with "Get Up Get Down," featuring chaotic production from Stephan Ponce and THEMPeople. The record is similar to OutKast's "Git Up Git Out" in title, however in content and sound, the songs differ greatly. Mick urges listeners to move their body and have a good time-- it sounds like he's more so trying to get people to turn up ("all we wanna give you is a good time") whereas OutKast requested you to get up and do something productive with your life. Nonetheless, knowing Mick's penchant for double entendres and lyricism there's likely a deeper meaning to "Get Up Get Down," should you choose to find it.
Wave[s] is due out on August 21st and will feature 9 records.
Came in this bitch with intentions to black out
The audience all white, I thought we been blacks out
See thirty five show tour and I almost backed out a year ago
Back in my bag, back in the days, a young nigga trapped out the pad
Couple of ounce, no, it wasn't too bad
Cup full of water, I be missin' my dad
