Mick Jenkins has been known for his lyricism and substance since his first mixtape, The Waters. However, he is often criticized for the lack of material he puts out. Mick Jenkins fans finally have something to look forward to. He recently announced that he is done with his next studio album (T)he (H)ealing (C)omponent via Instagram. With no specific release date, we can only sit and wait. Here's a new track from the emcee to help ease the pain. As usual he completely bodies it, with his clever use of metaphors and unique flow. Take a listen.
Chance the Rapper recently dropped his most recent mixtape "Coloring Book," in which he really exhibits his unique sound. With live instrumentals on most of the production and gospel inspired vocals throughout the tape, we hear Chance's love for gospel music and how it influences his music. With his first two critically acclaimed mixtapes, 10 Day and Acid Rap, Chance provides us with another gem that doesn't sound like any other project out right now. With a lot of features on this project including Future, Lil Wayne, 2Chainz and Kanye West, Chance is still able to stay true to his own sound.
Overall this tape will speak to your soul, while still providing you with the bars that a hip-hop lover is always looking for. Make sure to take a listen and download the tape. Check out this throw away track from the album that features fellow Chicago artists, Mick Jenkins and Alex Wiley, two other lyrical geniuses.
