Mick Jenkins - Free Nation (Rebel Soldier pt. 2)

Posted 2 years ago
The Water[s]

For many youths growing up in Southside Chicago, every day is a fight to survive. Even so, some dreamers manage to claw their way out of the street and make their mark on the world. Mick Jenkins clearly aspires to be one of those success stories, as he makes clear on new mixtape single Free Nation (Rebel Soldier pt. 2). The sequel to a joint off 2013’s Trees & Truths tape, this pensive cut finds 6thBoro serving up a pensive, piano-led beat as the headliner reminisces about his strife-ridden Windy City upbringing and assures listeners that his rise to prominence is just a matter of time. Is this passionate up-and-comer, as he claims on the back, the “next best out the Chi?” If you think so, keep it locked for release details on his currently-unscheduled The Water[s] street album, as well as watching our front page for his contribution to our exclusive freestyle series.
