- Artist: Mick Jenkins
- Track: Lazarus
- Producer: Chuck Strangers
- Album: The Water[s]
Mick Jenkins may dub himself “young Lazarus” on his latest feature, but don't get it twisted: the record is less a return from the dead than the continuation of an ongoing rise to prominence. Earlier this year, the Chicago repper dropped off a reader-acclaimed contribution to the DJBooth freestyle series, and he was recently selected as one of our “Top Prospects” this quarter. The newly-signed, Cinematic Music Group buzzmaker stays killing it on this freshly-released single, lacing Chuck Strangers's wavy, guitar-laced production with gruffly-flowed lyrical flames. The Water[s] is slated to drop independently, both for free and digital purchase, on Tuesday, August 12. In the meantime, of course, we'll keep you supplied with the latest song releases.
