Listen to the Essential Mick Jenkins Tracks on Audiomack

By Donna-Claire Chesman on August 21, 2018

Audiomack puts together a specially curated playlist of essential Mick Jenkins songs.

Mick Jenkins is the brooding wordsmith of Chicago. His burly voice and layered meanings have blossomed into an expansive and evocative discography, boasting subtle philosophical energy and messages of love over everything. With a new project on the way, Audiomack has gone back and put together a specially curated playlist of essential Mick Jenkins songs.

Of course, this playlist features “The Waters,” a staple Jenkins track, but it also covers some of his best moments outside of records: his Shade 45 freestyle and a grip of his most compelling features. The element tying all of these tracks together is Mick Jenkins’ penchant for poetry and his ability to turn the heady into the accessible. While we know Chicago as either the home of drill or the home of swirling and bubbly poetics, Mick Jenkins is moving music forward by standing in a lane all his own.

If you like what you hear, make sure to keep up with Mick Jenkins on Audiomack.
