The Lowdown: It's been two years since Mick Jenkins released his debut album, The Healing Component. Since then, the Chicago rapper has moved on from pitching love to the world in order to address deep societal issues, especially those that affect black people. On his 17-track sophomore album, Pieces of a Man, the rapper makes it easy to absorb his words as he spreads them over a blend of mellow sounds.
