Fans are well familiar with Mick Jenkins' poetic sensibility. With a background in creative writing, Mick's pen features a literary quality many of his peers lack. For some, such dense lyricism can appear daunting; after all, referential wordplay and frequent double-entendres can be exhausting for those seeking the comfort accessibility. Yet Mick has never dumbed it down, and his fans have remained loyal as a result. Now, Mick has come through with yet another lyrical offering, this one titled "Elephant In The Room."
While "Bruce Banner" found Mick on his braggadocios tip, "Elephant" features a return to the unconventional. Taking to a smoky rhythm from Martin $ky & THEMpeople, Mick delivers potent doses of wisdom. "The elephant remembers it all, down to irrelevant," he spits, his flow nearly fragmented. "The regimen, a journey that slightly resembles The Revenant." Though far from the smoothest listen, Mick's sheer lyrical brilliance is enough to merit a few taps of the rewind button.
Stay tuned for that new Pieces Of A Man album, set to arrive
The elephant remembers it all down to irrelevant
The regimen, a journey that slightly resembles the revenant
The valley of the shadow of death
Maleficent energy prevalent
Cautious, not hesitant
I'm no average bum
Not Travis Gumbs but I know street etiquette
Don't be negligent
I found this knowledge, no prerequisite
Shoutout to feminists
