Mick Jenkins is a very good rapper, but the zone he and production buddies THEMpeople have gotten into is something that goes beyond just "good rapper," as anyone paying attention to the woozy, melodic world of last year's Wave[s] is well aware. They're back in the studio, and they've got two new songs to tide you over, "a collection of shit I've been working on with THEMpeople," which Mick described on Twitter as "just a sip." The pairing is called, naturally, Sip!, and it consists of "Grenade," a song that takes a hard look at Chicago, and "$3000 Advice," which dives into relationship dynamics.
Both feature singer theMIND, one of the only guests on Wave[s], who also appeared on Kirk Knight's Late Knight Special. Both are fantastic and a good sign of what might be on the way. Check them out below:
