After some time off, Chicago’s Mick Jenkins returns ready to take another step in setting himself apart with the release of his new single, ‘Bruce Banner’. The frustration is evident, and for Mick Jenkins, it’s time to take his place at the top or at least second. “Honesty, can’t nobody come for me ‘cept Kendrick,” he raps, and rightfully so it seems. On this new track, for almost four minutes, Mick Jenkins showcases his elite lyricism, with great wordplay and punchlines, separating himself as a “writer” and not just a rapper, as well as calling out the biters, and stating how he’s inspired some. His pen is definitely strong, and he proves it as he lyrically smashes through the beat with a Hulk-like aggression, destroying the doubts of those who might even question his position, all while maintaining a ‘Bruce Banner’ like tactfulness. However, it seems like the monster is about to be released, Mick Jenkins seems ready, and with all, it’s strong claims, ‘Bruce Banner’ leaves fans excited and anxious, as it sets the tone for his upcoming project.
Whether you agree or disagree with Mick Jenkins’ claim, one thing can be said, this track is definitely worth checking out below:
