Mick Jenkins links up with Lee Bannon and reiterates his wisdoms of the waters with new track "Alchemy."
"Don't greet me as God, my nigga I ain't no deity. Take off them water wings, I'm losing water weight, I been on creatine!"
Chicago's Mick Jenkins has been on the meteoric rise since the release of The Water[s] from touring with Kirk Knight, Saba, and Noname Gypsy to the numerous performances for the masses at this year's SXSW. "Alchemy" is the first single from Mick's upcoming project Wave[s] and it simply sublime. Mick's focus and verbal fluidity on are point, quenching the listener's thirst for knowledge with each bar. One thing I have noticed about Mr. Jenkins is how on keen he is on not being overly repetitive in the messages in his records, but from this track you slowly notice how Wave[s] symbolically differs from The Water[s]. They say you talking about water too much Mick? Never that, the world is eternally and daily dehydrated so "Alchemy" is greatly appreciated. DRINK MORE WATER!!!
