I originally heard of Mick Jenkins awhile back when he dropped the video for “Martyrs”. Hailing from Chicago it’s clear that he’s in great company with the rest of talent coming from the windy city, but he makes it explicitly clear that he is cut from a different cloth. In his latest track “Treat Me,” Jenkins and Supa Bwe rap about discrimination and needing the same treatment all around. With the hook screaming “Come off them benefits, treat me Caucasian” it’s clear they’re making a statement with this one.
Jenkins is gearing up for the release of his The Water[s] EP. This track can be found on Supa Bwe’s Hurt Everybody EP dropping on July 4th. Check out Mick Jenkins if you haven’t already, you can find his Trees and Truths mixtape on Datpiff. I’m certainly interested to hear more music from Jenkins. This guy is spitting substance and pushing messages. Stay tuned!
