Mick Jenkins – Alchemy

by .

PRODUCER: Lee Bannon and ThemPeople
PROJECT: The Wave[s]
ARTWORK BY: Hayveyah McGowan
LATEST RELEASE: The Water[s] | Download

Maybe it did take time for rapper Mick Jenkins to slowly familiarize himself with rap lovers but his new single “Alchemy” continues to portray the dense thoughts seen in previous material. Produced by Lee Bannon and ThemPeople, “Alchemy” has an intergalactic vibe, with a uniformed length of space between the beats. Jenkins really is an alchemist, the transformation of his beats throughout the track reflect Jenkins variations in tone. This distinct song magnitudes his belief of water symbolizing truth. For instance his 2014 mixtape titled The Water[s], includes the songs “Drink More Water”, “Shipwrecked”, “Dehydration” and “The Waters”. Jenkins obsession with truth conveys how he’d re imagine society or more specifically how he’d re imagine the rap game. This unorthodox tune sparks up a new message uncommonly seen in his other tracks, where Mick answers to the inquires about his love for ginger ale and water. The public service announcement at the end of the song is a slap to the cheek for all those wanting to know more about his fixations. For more of Mick Jenkins contagious contemplation, check out his new song “Alchemist” featured on the forthcoming EP, The Wave[s] above.

T.I. – Bankrolls on Deck (ft. Young Thug, Peewee Roscoe, Shad Da God)

If you are looking for a straightforward song, look no further than T.I.‘s “Bankrolls on Deck” which comprises of Young Thug and Grand Hustle members, Peewee Roscoe and Shad Da God. The slow progressive tune produces a laid back appeal that presents a glassy featurette for fast spitter Young Thug. The collaboration opens a jar of Atlanta, Georgia and spews out a song of lyrical simplicity. This song is included on Grand Hustle associate, DJ MLK‘s sixth installment of the upcoming mixtape Goodnight Don’t Exist in ATL. We look forward to hearing more from the mixtape, but for now enjoy “Bankrolls on Deck”.
