Mick Jenkins – The Water[s] (Mixtape)


Chicago’s Mick Jenkins delivers his highly anticipated sophomore mixtape, The Water[s]. He’s got 15 tracks, including a closer with Joey Bada$$ called “Jerome”.

He explained the meaning of the title to HNHH during a new Q&A:

The Water[s] is supposed to be representative of…we need water, our world needs water, our bodies need water, it’s probably the most essential element to life. And I feel like, with my ultimate goal being heaven, so is truth and spiritual truth. So it’s just a loose metaphor in that manner. And I chose water specifically because I feel like it can metaphorically be taken into a lot of directions, which is something we do throughout the tape. To put the brackets around the ‘s’ was just to say that, I mean I just felt like some might see as The Water, reference that alone, without any metaphor, and the ‘s’ was to spark that metaphor, just to make you think about why it was added.
