Mick Jenkins - P's & Q's (Video)

The release of "Wave[s]" grows closer, as we get a new single titled "Ps & Qs". In this visual we get a scene of dysfunction and chaos as Jenkins calmly walks through it all without hesitation. He gets production from Kaytranada, who's handles the back drop to a few of my favorites, while rapping of being ahead of his peers, being alert and on his toes in the chaos. Watch below.
"For the "P's & Q's" video, we wanted to shoot something with a constant flow of motion to complement Mick's unending verse. I created the idea of Mick walking through a scene of complete chaos, yet being unaffected by everything. To create that effect, I had Mick walk backwards from left to right through the entire scene as people pelted him with various items. That way, once we reversed the footage, Mick would look like the only person moving forward and everything would lift off of his body, leaving the chaos behind. Everything in the shot — the fire, water, even the train — was in-camera. We did no VFX whatsoever, and the actual shot only took 15 seconds to film at 240 frames per second, or 10 times slower than real-time. At the end of the video, the water bottle that floats into Mick's hand symbolizes that his words and lyrics hold the truth amongst all the other nonsense people are exposed to." - Mick Jenkins

Two days ago fans were given a new single and visual for the song "Loosie", a video that reminded me of Ludacris' "Southern Hospitality", if only for aim to defy gravity. This was our first listen from his upcoming project "Talk Back", that has yet to get a release date.

Earlier via Twitter Kembe X dropped news of a new song featuring Danny Brown, called "Hereditary". With artwork by DillestTheillest, we don't know whether is will be on his upcoming project, so stay tuned for more info.
