Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins has announced a new album, Elephant in the Room, due October 29 via Cinematic Music Group. The album features serpentwithfeet, plus production from Saba, Joe Armon-Jones, Monte Booker, and more. Speaking about the project, Mick says, "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 first single is "Contacts," which finds Mick at the top of his game over some chilled-out production by Rascal, Tae Beast & Eli Brown. Listen and watch the video below.
