Mick Jenkins “11”

Mick brings it with this new release “11”, a lyrically somber record that is named after the amount of times Eric Garner said “I can’t breathe” before his tragic death.

The Chicago emcee writes and delivers his thoughts that this event has represented for the culture and there are some powerful one-liners littered amongst them. He really got my attention with the “I can find your house on Google Earth” line.

Another impressive and thoughtful output from Jenkins who continues to grow on me as an artist with each release.
