mick jenkins has been enjoying a swift ascension into the upper echelon of contemporary hip-hop artists.  after releasing last year’s excellent the water[s], jenkins will return with a similarly-themed ep, water[s], out august 21st via cinematic music group.  the nine-track effort features a fair amount of production from thempeople and kaytranada, although jenkins enlists the help of fellow chicagoan stefan ponce on its newest single, “get up get down.”  jenkins’ dexterous delivery waxes and wanes with the intensity of ponce’s bass lines before mellowing out for the song’s final third.  take a listen to “get up get down” below.
