Stream Mick Jenkins’ New Project ‘Wave[s]’ A Week Early

mick jenkins waves

Without a doubt, Mick Jenkins is one of my favorite artists out right now. His ability to craft thought provoking rhymes while juggling various subject matters such as police brutality, water consumption, and marijuana have been part of the formula that equates to his success thus far. With the caliber of music that he is creating, and at a time when trap rap is flooding the market, the Chicago MC was snubbed from that XXL Freshman cover (this is my opinion clearly, but I’m sure others will agree). 2014’s The Water[s] was easily one of the top projects to release for the year.

Mick Jenkins’ latest offering is his nine-track follow up, Wave[s]. The official drop for the project isn’t until next Friday; however, NPR has come through with an early stream. The project has features & production from  SabaSean Deaux, Lee Bannon​, Kaytranada, ThemPeople, and more.

Head on over to NPR for the full stream, and be sure to support good music by purchasing the album on iTunes next week. Checkout his upcoming tour dates below (Good*Fella Media will be on hand during his performance at Made in America this September).
