We need a whole project of Mick Jenkins and Kaytranada songs

After releasing the braggadocious single “Bruce Banner” earlier in the month, Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins is back with another new song.

The song is called “What Am I To Do” and it features the always reliable Kaytranada on the production tip. Kay comes through with a dreamy-sounding beat, while Mick completely catches wreck.

In the first verse the rapper spits:

The less you got stuffed in your pocketbooks
The more these politicians just sound like crooks
They give me sloppy looks
They gave us nothing, had to hustle same way coffee cook
Early morning grind trying to help these niggas wake up
Etch A Sketch flows, I got the shit to shake up

There is no release date set for Mick Jenkins’ new album, but the rapper said to expect it to drop in the fall. Stream “What Am I to Do” below.
