Currently fresh off the release of his debut studio debut album “THC (The Healing Component)”, Mick Jenkins, the Alabama-born-Chicago-raised rapper makes the personal political with smart rhymes.

Jenkin’s first release, 2013’s “Trees and Truths” mixtape caught the ears of Chicago’s scene-makers with its acid jazz-influenced production, biblical allegory and lacerating lyricism.

“The Water[s]” LP arrived a year later, a meditation on water as life’s truths it stands as Jenkins breakout project.

Propelled by viral smashes ‘So Devillish’, ‘Gold Soul Theory’ and ‘Herb Shuttles’, The Underachievers are making their way out of their Flatbush, New York home one rhyme at a time.

“Renaissance”, their current release explodes with feel-good energy with xxlmag describing it as an album that speaks to those more concerned with lyrical content, cementing their place as a reputable rap group.
