Last featured for his single “Carefree,” Mick Jenkins returns with the release of his new EP The Circus. Starting off 2020 with a bang, this project is laced in seven tracks and one lone feature from Earthgang amid production from DJ FU, Beat Butcha and Da-P to name a few.
Lyrically the Chicago bred emcee doesn’t disappoint.
He melds introspective and intellectual scripting to thus produce a solid body of work where each record shifts fittingly to the next instead of a hodgepodge of random singles.
He addresses his stake in hip-hop, life as he knows it, his perceptions of wealth and more. It’s laden with prophetic metaphors and noteworthy production. It’s an EP that beams in a narrative-like approach as he converses with his listeners on each track.
We need hip-hop like this in 2020 and Jenkins delivered, check it out above.
