Album Review: Elephant in the Room by Mick Jenkins

Great, Based on 3 Critics

Under The Radar - 80
Based on rating 8/10

On "Jazz," a song from Mick Jenkins' 2014 mixtape The Water[s], the emcee's poetic prowess is on display for all to see. He has always utilized his voice as his greatest weapon--that devastating baritone--but the way he masterfully contorts it on this particular track is chilling. From illuminating alliteration to his potent use of imagery, "Jazz" is Jenkins at his biggest, his most brazen, his most powerful.

Mick Jenkins has spent his career holding a mirror to America and delving into the furthest corners of his soul. The loquacious Chicago rapper is fiercely ambitious when it comes to the album as an art form. We're talking about a man who tried to define the meaning of love on The Healing Component, walk the path of Gil Scott-Heron on the intensely personal Pieces of a Man, and submerge himself into the conceptual depths of The Water(s).

Almost two years later and a global pandemic sandwiched in-between releases, the Chicago-based rap extraordinaire is back with his third LP, 'Elephant In The Room'.
