Later this year, Mick Jenkins will release his follow-up to last year's The Water[s], the similarly-titled The Wave[s]. After giving us the Lee Bannon-produced "Alchemy," he links up with the ever-impressive Kaytranada for another cut that will appear on the EP, "P's & Q's."
A jazzy, loping track, "P's & Q's" has Jenkins rapping ferociously for 2.5 minutes with no hook, save for a repeated incorporation of the title into his lyrics. His flows on here are dizzying, as are the lyrics, and you "Alchemy" and the rest of his post-Water[s] tracks, Jenkins is seeming more and more like a force to be reckoned with in the rap game.
I been on my P's and Q's, quantum leaps ahead of my peers
They not even in my peripheral, pray I keep it proper
'Cause they playing so political, the petty is so pitiful
Niggas Peter Pettigrew, I'm of a higher pedigree
I'm peddling this penmanship, appreciate the pleasantries
