Mick Jenkins – “The Artful Dodger”

Mick Jenkins, the sharp and introspective young Chicago rapper, got a Mixtape Of The Week from us for his 2014 tape The Water[s], and he’s currently working on his official debut album. In the meantime, as Pitchfork points out, he just released a new track called “The Artful Dodger.” Kaytranada, the Montreal beatmakers who produced Jenkins’ 2014 track “Rain,” co-produced this one with THEMPeople, and it’s a skittering, blurping electronic track that gives Jenkins plenty of chances to flex his flow. Listen to it below.

Look out for this guy; he’s going places.
