Any and every artist has felt it before. The doubt, the anxiety, the wonder if your art, your labor, your ideas are good enough. For Mick Jenkins, explaining in an interview to WGN Radio, the more time passes between releases the more gets uneasy he gets, whether it because of the label or timing. What he forgets or does not realize is that time has little to do with relevance. The quality of the work what makes a piece timeless.
Mick Jenkins prepares for more releases, projects and collabs as he sees fit but as he explained to WGN, he has to release music. Or More; The Anxious is that compromise; to release the music without the grandeur for now. Filled with dark vibes and cryptic lyrics, these seven tracks underlines Jenkins position in Chicago hip hop fiercely. Reminding you that he has not gone anywhere.
Yes Jenkins been done made his presence known among the top Chicago hip hop artists and emcees like Probcause, Rich Jones, Saba, Chance, Vic Mensa, Rhymster and everyone within those circles that have made this Chicago music renaissance what it is. Influencing newer music artists like recent collaborators Lowca$e and Tosa Brooks, Jenkins should leave a legacy. Imagine the imprint he will leave when we releases in his imagination a perfect project.
