Mick Jenkins - Steam

Producer:
TJay Beats
Album:
DJBooth Freestyle Series (#16)

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries were the work of a veritable who’s-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars like Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. Now, it’s back for a second round. The 16th entry in the relaunched series comes courtesy of Mick Jenkins, the Midwestern spitter who has impressed our readers with 2014 singles Martyrs and Free Nation (Rebel Soldier pt. 2). On Steam, TJay Beats’ sparse, whirring production chops back the Chi-Town native as he aggressively and confidently spits bar after bar. Fred Lozano provides original artwork to accompany the release. Feeling it? Then stay tuned; Jenkins is preparing to release his new project, The Water[s], this summer.
