Along with all the details for his forthcoming Wave[s], Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins has shared “Get Up Get Down”, a track featuring production by ThemPeople and Stefan Ponce. The cut has an old-school feel and is definitely a solid jam filled with the perfect summertime vibes (no offense Vince) with an insanely low rumbling bass halfway through. But don’t fret lyric junkies, Jenkins spits that heat: “Isn’t it ironic/ Got ’em hooked on phonics/ Mama used to think it was just chronic/ It was all bad.” Fire! Peep that new new from Mick Jenkins after the jump.

New Music: Mick Jenkins – “11”

 |  December 29, 2014

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.

In Mick Jenkins’ portion of the video we see a young black male who is severely mistreated by authority on the basis of his skin tone. While on the other side of the spectrum, we see Supa BWE who is treated as though he’s Caucasian because of his fairer complexion. Check out the video after the jump.
