Mick Jenkins Returns With New Song “A Layover”
Mick Jenkins drops off his first song in a minute with the THEMPeople-produced song "A Layover." The song sounds like it's dripped in molasses as Jenkins bars cut over the sparse beat.
The soulful song is an update of sort for fans that missed the enigmatic Chicago rapper. "First class got em looking' like who this motherfucker," spits Jenkins as he uses his travels through the airport as a metaphor of sorts for his career. Mick Jenkins has always been ahead of his time, and as the song closes he makes sure listeners, fans, and other rappers know. "We seven hours ahead nigga, all y'all late," spits Mick.
Mick's been relatively quiet in 2017 after having an eventful 2016. In March, he dropped a collab with the DMV's Goldlink called "Pressed For Time (Cross My Mind)," which was also co-produced by THEMPeople. Mick dropped his last full-length project, The Healing Component, in Sept. 2016. The album featured guests like BadBadNotGood, Ravyn Lae, Noname Gypsy, and Xavier Omar among others.
However, many might remember how he demolished his Sway in the Morning freestyle. “We lost one, just know that I can never get that jaded/If ever a bone to pick, know I’d never be dislocated/I’m off one, turning with the sage for the good vibes/Better know you fucking with some good guys/But if you ever feel the drop sets from your hood at us/Know that in a swift moment we could be Goodfellas, it’s not a game,” are the type of bars fans came to expect from the Chicago native.
