Leading up the release of last fall's The Healing Component, Mick Jenkins revealed that he was already "10 songs deep" into his next full-length release. Five months later, the Chicago emcee has provided his fans with an update.

On Monday (March 6), Jenkins tweeted that he has not one, but two new projects in the works, both of which are slated for release in 2017.

"I know y'all want that hard shit," read a note attached to the Jenkins' tweet. "Ima give it to you."

The Healing Component, a 15-track LP that was rooted in the message of spreading love, was Jenkins' first full-length album, following his highly-acclaimed 2014 mixtape The Water[s] and its 2015 follow-up, the Wave[s] EP.

Alongside announcing his plans to unveil two projects this year, Jenkins also released "Pressed for Time (Crossed My Mind)," a previously-unreleased record featuring GoldLink and co-produced by Monte Booker and THEMpeople.
