Mick Jenkins is one of the most exciting young rappers out right now. Ever since his critically acclaimed debut project The Water[s], it’s like everything he touches turns to gold. His magic is on full display with The Purist’s new single, “Touch Me,” featuring mind-boggling verses from the young Chicago MC.
Purist has done songs with Action Bronson and Roc Marciano before, but Mick brings him out of his comfort zone into dreamier, more elastic sounds than what East Coast traditionalists might be comfortable going over. It also gives Jenkins the aural space he needs to flip rhyme gymnastics. Fast or slow, the kid Mick is really one of the nicest right now.
