Produced by Mike Gao

Fresh off the announcement of his joint tour with Kembe X and Supa Bwe, Alex Wiley recruits Mick Jenkins for a smooth new release. No word on if this is just a loosie or if it’ll be on Wiley’s newly revived and forthcoming Synthia project. Regardless, this release is a much appreciated slapper from these two. But we could have guessed that. Almost automatically.

Video: Mick Jenkins f/BADBADNOTGOOD – Drowning

mick-jenkins-badbadnotgood-drowning-video-0

Produced by BADBADNOTGOOD. Directed by Nathan R. Smith.

The release of Mick Jenkins’ debut album, The Healing Component is finally upon us, and Mick decided to take today to release a new track in conjunction with Red Bull Sound Select titled “Drowning.” But the goodness doesn’t stop there, he also unveiled the ridiculously stacked track list. As much as The Water[s] brought Mick into greater discussions on artists to watch in the game, this next release could set the stage for a huge 2017 for him. This video alone should get the internet buzzing with discussions and dissertations. Check it out, along with the album’s tracklist and official coverart after the jump.

The Healing Component will feature credits from Noname, Sango, Ravyn Lenae, Kaytranada, theMIND, Cam O’bi, Monte Booker, and more. Yeah, stacked. Release is set for September 23rd, but you can pre-order on iTunes tonight starting at midnight.

Also, be sure to catch Mick Jenkins on his Quest For Love Tour with Red Bull Sound Select, which kicks off September 29th in Seattle. Mick, Smino and Kweku will play Chicago on October 20th. RSVP for $3 here.

Warhol.SS – Hunid Man

Produced by Digital Nas

Warhol.ss has been unquestionably hot lately. Every few days he appears to slide another banger onto the interwebs. This week’s joint serves as a reminder of what Warhol.ss is dealing with: all hunnids.

Is this also acting as an official announcement that he’s joined Atlanta’s 3200 clique? Only time will tell, but he’s obviously close with member Kevin Pollari, so the connection is there. For now though, check out Warhol.ss’ latest after the jump.

New Project: Tink – Winter’s Diary 4

Cqt28gFW8AAhoKK

The fourth installment of Tink’s storied Winter’s Diary release series is here — on the 15th anniversary of Aaliyah’s death no less. Coincidence? Perhaps. But a fitting dedication, nonetheless. Even though I’m not with the Aaliyah comparisons because Tink is very much her own artist.

But I digress.

On Part 4, she truly gets back to basics, and today it’s a full blown winter storm in August. Let it all fall down with her latest release, which plays out like an album instead of a mixtape. I’m only a few tracks in and it’s already sounding amazing.

Timbaland, Lil Durk, C-Sick, 1500 or Nothin and Cookin’ Soul all show up to contribute. Feel the cold breeze below.
