Mick Jenkins has built a reputation as one of the most ferocious lyricists of Chicago’s new wave, and, in my opinion, has arguably the top mixtape of the year with The Water[s]. He has a knack for wrapping (pun intended) real life messages and ideals inside of intricate, welcoming bars—remind you of anyone? Maybe Kendrick Lamar? Just as K. Dot has done with songs like “Swimming Pools,” Mick has succeeded in doing the same. Today, he’s back with the visuals for one of my personal favorites from the project, titled “Dehydration.” It features The Mind with some killer, complementary vocals, and the chant-laden production was handled by DJ Dahi.
