The Alabama Native, who came up in The Chi, has toured with and received praise from some of the top names in the hip hop game and with good reason. His Hip Hop Group Free nation, stands behind a powerful message. They “promote creative thought without accepting narrow views imposed by the powers that be” and that “when you find a way to combat the status quo, you are free.” This message is at the heart of Mick’s music and in this way he represents the intelligent and extremely side of Chicago’s Hip hop scene that is often overshadowed by lesser talents.
Jenkins is currently touring with Joey Bada$$ and recently performed at Lollapalooza. He’s set to begin his own tour in the fall. Mick has worked with the likes of Chuck Inglish, Noname Gypsy, and Chance The Rapper and is set to tour with STWO a French electronica artist, (get tickets here).
His latest release Waves will be coming out officially August 21st.
