“Pull up puffin’ on the indo, Chevy sittin’ up on the renzos”
Mick Jenkins recently connected with acclaimed producer KAYTRANADA for the creation of “Understood”, a smooth new record that comes off his album Pieces of a Man which is set to be released on the 26th. The track manifests the Chicago-based rapper’s introspective, metaphor-heavy approach with bars like “My fingers recently wrestled the evergreen // Been 100 proof, the message is Everclear // Speaking for the crew, I’m playing Miss Everdeen, peculiar // Yeah, I study Miss Peregrine, my pedigree”.
With “Understood” being Mick’s second track in the last month that’s built upon an instrumental from the Canada beatsmith, we can only hope to see KAYTRANADA’s name widely spread across the upcoming project. For now, take a trip into Mick’s mind by streaming the track below.
