Have you been fiending some new Mick Jenkins? Yeah, we have been too. Following his breakout mixtape The Water[s] from earlier this year Jenkins has been relatively quiet. Sure, he’s dropped some dope features here and there as well as various loosies (including the very good “Fate”) but we’ve been craving some solo Jenkins material. But it looks like today we’re receiving a treat in “11” a new solo Mick Jenkins cut. Produced by NIFDproductions, the powerful track is named after the amount of times Staten Island native Eric Garner said “I can’t breathe” before his untimely death at the hands of police officers. Listen to Mick Jenkins’ “11” after the jump.

OG Maco, the New Atlanta rapper who is perhaps best known for his viral smash “U Guessed It” from earlier this year, has just released his BREATHE EP, the followup to his aggressive and uncompromising OG Maco EP. The BREATHE EP drastically differs from Maco’s previous aforementioned music in that it finds Maco rapping with a clear mind, on civil rights issues in America right now (those being the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, respectively.) The three tracks “Get Down,” “Do Better,” and “Riot” are undoubtedly OG Maco’s most introspective moments in his short catalog and it’s refreshing to hear a quintessential “trap rapper” attempt something different for a change.
