Who Else could give us a single just a month removed from their DJBooth Freestyle Series feature? Well, that’s an easy one, since there is only one answer; it’s Mick Jenkins. Just four weeks after the release of his flame freestyle, Steam, Jenkins returns with a record from his highly-anticipated (at least by us) project, The Water[s]. Setting the stage on Who Else is producer TJ Osinulu, who cooks up a slurred beat that is driven by rattling drums and some lurching, mysterious samples. Though the beat has some muffled effects, it is Jenkins voice that claps like thunder. His gritty, forceful delivery really makes each bar stand out and showcases how much strength this young emcee has in his verbage. Be sure to check back with The DJBooth for more form Mick as we approach the June 24, release date of The Water[s].
