Mick Jenkins has kept a relatively low profile since delivering his critically acclaimed second mixtape The Water[s] at the end of last summer, releasing sparse records since then. As he heads out on the road with Pro Era's Kirk Knight, Saba and No Name Gypsy, he hit us with a new cut today "Time", produced by his go-to OnGaud. There's also a few familiar references here, from water, to the truth, to trees.
The song is a taste of an upcoming Chi-town compilation mixtape put together by FDC and 119 Productions, titled Chicago Sights ‘N Sounds.
This morning we launched a ticket giveaway for the Mick x Kirk tour, so if you're a fan, you can head here to win a pair of tickets.
Better know that I'm risking it all
Know that this ain't just to ball
Better know that I dropped outta college
And spoke at DePaul, the one they poke fun at
Know that my pictures been focused, some ain't got focus at all
Watch the waves fall, watch how I run that
