Mick Jenkins Performs “Outro” on BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions
The Chicago MC shows off his poetic rapping style throughout the four-minute clip. His deep voice and witty rhymes combine with the smooth piano background to create a polished finished product. You can view the video above via BBC Radio 1's YouTube account.
Mick raps, "You'd never expect it from him right?/Please don't confuse shade with the shadows from dim lights/I been bright/I been in spaces dark as midnight/My pen write on both/My insight on both is skin tight/In spite of the fact that I'm inside the hoax/All my niggas got a horcrux or two or four/We don't die, we multiply but you knew that already/Shift the culture, we do that already/If you don't give me credit for nothing but making kids in Chicago drink more water/I proved that already."
In other Mick Jenkins-related news, the 25-year-old artist recently freestyled on Sway in the Morning. He spit, “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." The Healing Component, a 15-track project with features from Themind, Michael Anthony and more, is an excellent follow-up to Jenkins' previous two bodies of work, The Water[s] and Wave[s].
