Mick Jenkins delivers powerful new cut "Truffles"

24 June 2021, 12:36 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Chicago's Mick Jenkins has returned with his first solo outing of the year, "Truffles".

"Truffles", which is teamed with a Andre Muir-directed video, marks Jenkins' first official solo outing since last year's "Frontstreet".

Jenkins says of the track, ""Truffles" attempts to address the idea that Blackness, no matter what, can always be weaponised. From a young man actually committing a crime, to being somewhere we aren't 'supposed' to be, to even being an agent of change in our own and other communities. It's a statement that can be heard about Black people of all walks especially when doing something unconventional in white spaces. As complex as Fred Hampton, or as simple as moving into a nice neighbourhood, we can always be viewed as 'n***** making trouble'."

Although "Truffles" marks Jenkins' first official release of the year, he has collaborated with likes of CANCEL CULTURE, Daichi Yamamoto, Nate Husser, Markis Precise, LOONY and more.

Mick Jenkins' "Truffles" single is out now.
