With Statik Selektah’s remix project The Best of A3C dropping tomorrow, A3C and iHipHop Distribution have decided to share the full album today via HipHopDX. The album includes remixes of A3C compilation series tracks by G-Eazy, Action Bronson, Dave East, Vince Staples, Mick Jenkins, The Underachievers, Michael Christmas, and more.
On the heels of premiering his new single “Still Good” on Beats 1 Radio with Ebro, rising Chicago Rapper/Producer Calez has released the version with all his friends. Calez teamed up with Mick Jenkins, Alex Wiley and Donny Trumpet for the track. Listen to it after the jump.
We’re certainly no strangers to rap beefs and diss records. In fact, there’s really never a shortage of them. But, unlike the content generating, globally realized, and media blitzing of the Drake/Meek Mill beef from a month back, this Vic Spencer/Mick Jenkins beef is kinda lame. I mean, it all started with yet another Twitter spat. Cool. (Apparently Vic had some choice words for a Chicago venue, The East Room, and Mic took issue with that.) Now, these talented Chi-Town emcees are embroiled in a beef. But I can’t say I’m all that impressed with this “Dick Jerkins” track. While Vic certainly has bars for days, the constant beat switch-ups here (along with the cringe-inducing song title) just doesn’t cut it in the end. No response from Mic Jenkins just yet. However, we’re not entirely sure that’ll even be necessary. In the meantime, peep Vic Spencer’s “Dick Jerkins” diss record after the jump.
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.
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.
After dropping one of the better mixtapes of 2014 in The Water[s] he continues his hot streak with “Fate,” a jazzy cut that is set to appear on producer Ambi Lyrics’ forthcoming Your Music, which is dropping December 28th. Listen to “Fate” after the jump.
Mick Jenkins and Supa BWE drop the music video for “Treat Me”, a visual on the issue of racial discrimination. In the video, which utilizes a split screen, we are given a day in the life of both Mick Jenkins and Supa BWE. 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.
After dropping 3 videos, iHipHop Distribution and the A3C Hip-Hop Festival are ready to reveal the track list for A3C Volume 4. The story broke today on HipHopDX, and the album features appearances from the likes of Sir Michael Rocks, Chris Webby, Mick Jenkins, The Underachievers, EarthGang, Robb Bank$, and more. Read More
The two young vets pair for a phenomenal duet. It’s drenched in story but never didactic. YC has been putting down pristine verse after pristine verse this year. Check the song after the jump.
