Mick Jenkins is a 28-year-old American recording artist who's based in Chicago. His latest release "Pieces of a Man" came out on October 26, 2018. The album's production came from multiple contributors such as THEMpeople, Black Milk, BadBadNotGood, Kaytranada, and Nez & Rio, among others. The album features guest appearances from Ghostface Killah, Julien Bell, Mikahl Anthony, Ben Hixon, and Corinne Bailey Rae. Pieces of a Man also prominently pays homage to Gil Scott-Heron's 1971 debut studio album, Pieces of a Man. The new album sees Mick returning to assert himself as a lyrically-dominant rapper operating in a lane of his own. Finding Mick at a wiser period in his life, Pieces of a Man showcases his penchant for dynamic storytelling with an introspective, and investigative look at the state of the world through his eyes and informed by his experiences.
