Chicago’s Mick Jenkins and Bronx native YC The Cynic may hail from different regions, but their similarities far outweight their differences. For example, neither is able to tolerate even the faintest whiff of fakeness. On joint single Keep It 100, the emcees remind jaded listeners what real sounds like.
