It was released on August 12,by Cinematic Music Group. The Waters is a concept mixtape. Jenkins' lyrics are immersed in the symbolic meanings of water. When the album's main trio is composed of some of the best songs of the year, other tracks can't help but pale in comparison.
Still, The Water s proves that Jenkins is as ambitious as he is talented. Saying that The Water s shows potential would be unfair. Jenkins has already arrived. Steven Goldstein of HipHopDX gave the mixtape a positive review saying " False - Gorefest - False Water[s] is one of the most accomplished releases out of Chicago this year, but it's not sensitive to time or location.
Rather, the year-old Jenkins raps about longstanding issues that are both institutional and individual. He's keen to point out the bullshit that clouds our day-to-day, but more importantly, he readily admits when the solutions can't be found. Michael Blair of XXL gave the mixtape a grand "XL", writing "The indisputable success that Mick has achieved in The Water[s]is not only confirmation that he is imperative to the progress of hip-hop within his specific region of the country, but most importantly, that he warrants recognition as a formidable opponent to some of hip-hop's most highly regarded MCs.
Mick Jenkins' proverbial cup is currently filled with some of the purest water that the industry has to offer, and if you ask the fearless man who's holding it, he'll assure you that there is an eternal supply of it to come.
