Mick Jenkins is officially back in action with the release of his brand new album, “Elephant In The Room”.
“This album is an attempt to address various unspoken personal and/or general truths. And how they have affected me and can affect those around me,” Mick Jenkins says in a Notes entry on an interactive website (password: Carefree) he released with the project. “From my estranged relationship with my father to friendships that don’t feel the same anymore to the even more basic idea of acknowledging that I need help. We become accustomed to allowing none progressive qualities and truths to occupy so much space in our lives simply by ignoring them, or ignoring them despite them being right in our faces! I intend to face several of those dormant issues/topics head-ons in the hopes that others can, at the very least, identify with the spaces I’ve grown from.”
The 12-track release includes contributions from Saba, Monte Booker, Thelonious Martin, Renzell, Tee-Watt, serpentwithfeet and others.
