Mick Jenkins hits us with one of his newest tracks “Your Love” from his Wave[S] EP. With production from the great Kaytranada the two work together to create a next level head snapping tune that will be stuck in your head for weeks to come.
Mick Jenkins is an American emcee hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Coming right off of his The Water[S] tour, as well as the release of his Wave[S] EP which dropped on August 21st, 2015. Mick likes to keep his collaborations within his inner circle, and has worked with artist such as: Sean Deaux, Saba, and TheMind. Kaytranada, the Haitian-Canadian electronic musician has a huge music catalog, and has wrked with endless amounts of artists. Kaytranada’s production credits span all the way from Goldlink, Vic Mensa, Towkio, Freddie Gibbs, The Internet, and many, many more.
“Your Love” starts off with a focus on Kaytranada’s pristine funk inspired production before Mick does his thing over the beat. The first time you hear Mick on the track he is bringing in his deep gritty lyrics that he handles oh so well before the hook makes its mark in the most catchy way possible. The production holds the greatest aspects of old school hip-hop production with elements of the new school courtesy of Kaytranada’s polished aesthetic.The chemistry between Mick and Kaytranada has not gone unnoticed. The two should definitely consider working together more often, a Jenkins X Kaytranada EP would be earth shattering.
Mick is a force to be reckoned with to say the least, he’s just getting started with his art but has already picked up the momentum and fan base that many artists would take twice, or even three times as long to match.
