chicago upstart mick jenkins released his highly anticipated wave[s] ep last friday, a nine-track effort that fleshes out the groundwork laid by 2014’s the water[s] while serving as a placeholder for jenkins’ ever-pending full-length, the healing component.  in tandem with the project’s release came a music video for “get up get down,” a standout cut featuring ambitious, at times angular production from stefan ponce and thempeople. co-directors nathan r. smith and sebastian sdaigui enlisted three kids from a local dance school to put their interpretive spin on “get up get down” for an end result that reflects jenkins’ conscious brand of rap and his dedication to the chicago arts scene.  check it out below.
