Rising Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins turned heads last year with his well-received mixtape The Water[s]. Now, he’s looking to build on that success with his forthcoming project, Wave[s]. As a preview of what’s to come in 2015, Jenkins has offered up a new single called “Alchemy”.
Produced by Lee Bannon (Joey Bada$$, The Alchemist), it’s a hard-hitting number in which Jenkins details the many challenges he’s had to deal with over the years. In some ways, it’s also a statement to all the rappers who may have underestimated him thus far — he’s here to stay and he can prove it. Listen in below.
