It’s been a relatively quiet 2017 for Mick Jenkins. His most recent appearance on a track was his exceptional guest spot on Mulatto Beats’s “Guilty Automatic” last month, and the latest single he dropped himself was the GoldLink featured “Pressed For Time” five months ago. The Chicago rapper has been in quite the layover indeed. After tweeting about how he’s working on a new album for the last few weeks though, he finally blessed our ears with a new single.
Whether or not “A Layover” is a loosie or is a single off his new album is unknown yet, but as long as Mick is dropping new music, it honestly doesn’t matter. This song is a classic Mick Jenkins staple, with an absolutely heavenly mellow drum beat produced by THEMPeople and Mick just dropping bars for two straight minutes.
With slick humble brags like “Silver spoon, I don’t need no clout” and “The driver hit me with “enchante/I think he know we eating good like them small ass plates,” Mick reminds audiences that he’s still just as good as ever, which could spell trouble for the competition. As he says in the closing lines of the song, he’s “7 hours ahead, n—a all y’all late.” If “A Layover” is indeed just a sample of what we should expect from the Southside rapper in the coming months, then it’s time that we start including his name more regularly in conversations talking about the best rapper in Chicago.
Chicago posse cut genius, Sunny Woodz, has been making a name for himself in Chicago for a minute. Aside from being a producer, DJ, and engineer, Sunny prides himself on bringing together the best collabs around the city for hit songs. His catalog of collabs goes from the OG’s of Chicago such as Twista to rising stars Supa Bwe and Mick Jenkins. Sunny is on a hot streak and there is no stopping him, as he’s due to drop his second project this year and will continue to be at the forefront of Chicago’s hip-hop movement. As we wait for for SunnySideUp2, here are 10 essential songs to get yourself familiar with Chicago Legend Sunny Woodz. Listen below.
Mick Jenkins has been performing in front of packed crowds these past few months and it is well deserved. His official video for “Spread Love” off of The Healing Component gives us a look into his shows both on stage and behind the scenes. Watch the visuals directed by Bryan Allen Lamb above.

Chicago is home and of course to us Chicagoans… The best city on earth. We’re a blog that strongly believes in it’s Chicago talent. With the current waves that Chicago is causing it’s amazing to see the city support each other. It’s love, it’s home grown and it’s real. Mick Jenkins & Fat Tiger came together to collab on a exclusive tour tee. The tee is only available on Mick Jenkin’s Red Bull Sound Select “A Quest For Love Tour with Smino” tour dates. The first 100 fans through the door at each stop will be gifted one of the four color ways: Grey, Black, Army Green and Khahi.
JoeFreshGoods on the collab:
“Mick has been a supporter of the shop and we’ve developed a natural friendship where now he’s family. When it came to his tour with Red Bull Sound Select and being able to collaborate it was very organic and natural. In terms of the design we wanted to keep in simple, clean and classic. We were inspired by the tour artwork, pulling soft colors from the background and using those neutral tones to come up with the four different color ways. We liked the bow and arrow and how it ties into the theme of love”
Catch Mick & Smino!
The tour is running until the 21st of October, so make sure you stop by the remaining tour stops.
