Mick Jenkins | Drowning (Video)
It’s not surprising to hear Mick Jenkins getting back into the water (albeit reluctantly) with his new video “Drowning” (feat. BADBADNOTGOOD). Jenkins’ 2014 album “The Water[s]” was awash in liquid imagery. “Drowning” is a song about feeling suffocated by “the real life” and fighting to stay afloat: “When the river holds you down, you supposed to drown right?” The rapper posted a video for his soulful song, which will be featured on his new album, The Healing Component, out September 23 via Free Nation label. The video was directed by Nathan R. Smith. Note: “The Water[s]” made the TBB list for best 14 albums of the year. — David D. Robbins Jr.
