water has become more than just a metaphor to mick jenkins: it’s his primary identifier as a musician.  water is fluid; water is a necessity to the continuation of life, much like jenkins’ raps are to the evolution of hip-hop.  following the success of last year’s the water[s] mixtape, the chicago-based rapper is set to release a new ep entitled wave[s] in the near future.  jenkins teased the ep’s opening track, “alchemy,” yesterday, a rich, lee bannon-produced effort that finds jenkins acknowledging his tropes and more importantly, justifying their continued appearance.  take a listen to “alchemy” below.
