Mick Jenkins left himself a lot to live up to with last year’s ‘The Water[s]‘ mixtape, but from the minute he opens new track ‘Alchemy’ with the words ‘Drink… more…. water…’ it’s clear he’s up to the task. On this, the first track from upcoming mixtape ‘Wave[s]’ [we see what you did there, Mick!] he’s backed by an almost entirely different style of production, but Jenkins’ flow is unfaltering and assured as always. Although this time around he sounds more urgent; more aggressive; flowing no faster than before but with far more immediacy. Stream below via SoundCloud.
