Mick Jenkins ft. theMIND - "Sunkissed"
Fans of Mick Jenkins have been patiently waiting for the release of his forthcoming album THC, the follow-up to 2015's Wave[s], for a few months now. While continuing to put the finishing touches on the new album, Mick returned this week with a new track to treat his fans.
Jenkins' latest track "Sunkissed" is a collaboration with frequent collaborator theMIND, with Da-P providing the bass-heavy production. Based on the title and the rhythm, it's easy to mistake this track as a light, fun song for the summertime. But Mick and theMIND manage to fit an important message to people of color about loving and appreciating the skin they're in over an infectiously bouncy rhythm that makes you want to listen to this on repeat.—Adrienne Black
