More Info:

Mick Jenkins releases new single†"Smoke Break-Dance"†featuring JID, which arrives today alongside an Andre Muir-directed music video. Produced by Stoic, the song is the first taste of his forthcoming album†The Patience†that will arrive on November 10th via RBC Records/BMG.†The Patience†marks Jenkins' first full length release since 2021's†Elephant in the Room.

Speaking about the album, Jenkins shares:†

The Patience: As best I can be, I am a person who does everything within his power to change his situation. I think with some level of consistency, that behavior inevitably leads you to a point where you have to wait. A point where the things that now need to happen to move you forward are no longer in your control. I see this as a period of time in†one's†journey, no matter the length,†where the unseen things must take place; The muscles must tear and repair, the understanding of a concept coming to you in a moment completely devoid of artistic intention. Itís through these moments where Iíve found myself being the most frustrated with patience.

And this body of work sounds like that frustration.

The body of work reflects Jenkins' status as a young veteran in his craft. First breaking out with his 2014 mixtape†The Water[s], he has established himself as one of the most dexterous contemporary lyricists over the course of 3 full length albums and 4 EPs since that mixtape's release.†The Patience†is the sound of an artist that is still young and at the full height of their artistic powers, wizened by the years spent grinding to reach this point, but eager to prove their continued vitality. The result is Jenkins' most urgent artistic statement since his breakthrough.
