“New Coupe, Who Dis?” proves Smino and Mick Jenkins are the perfect, soulful pair.
Chicago artists Smino and Mick Jenkins link up for their buoyant new single, “New Coupe, Who Dis?”, a showcase of each rappers’ talents and the undeniable energy rising out of Chicago. Produced by THEMpeople and Smino himself, the single carries the soulful and smooth monikers Smi is best known for, with an added kick and texture in the percussion for Jenkins to flow over.
Opening with some vocal pitching and layering, the track balloons out with a wobbling rhythm and infectious energy. Smino’s chipmunk vocals cede the floor to a focused and airtight verse from Mick Jenkins, packed with wordplay and a handful of smirking inflections to add another pop of color to the track. Sharing a track with Smi, Jenkins flashes the more melodic side of his delivery, proving that the two make a superb pair.
