Stream Mick Jenkins And Kaytranada’s Latest Release

It seems like anytime Montreal based producer Kaytranada works with Chicago rappers magic happens. When he worked with Vic Mensa on “Drive Me Crazy” we got one of Vic’s best tracks. Over the last few years Mick Jenkins and Kaytranada have been putting out some of the bounciest music around. Last night Mick Jenkins released “Understood” which was produced by Kaytranada. “Understood” comes ahead of Jenkins’ next album Pieces of A Man, due October 26th. Mick Jenkins has some of the most elevated imagery in the rap game, and his break down of the concept of understanding each other uses it to a tee, especially in the hook where he says, “Ay, pull up puffing on the indo/Chevy sitting up on the renzos/Old head hit me with the head nod/I understood a nigga like 10-4”
