Mick Jenkins Lyrics


Drink more water
Or you might die

Seven Nine, King Drive, you can picture me rollin'
Bendin' corners we was headed to the Rasta
Nigga been blessed but a nigga been sick
And a nigga been stressed so, fuck it I'm a doctor
Self medicated, ginger ale in the champagne flutes and I ain't celebratin'
Shookin' up crack
Where presentation's everything, tell 'em wait 'til I'm plated
Patience, I'm faded, like outdated denim
Hearin' it like this about as rare as a cadence
The boy got some Miles Davis in him, talkin' all that jazz

Tellin' all that truth, nigga talk your shit
Better watch your mouth, better watch your back
Better choose the right way on some fork in the road shit
And of course the path less traveled
Fuck I look like followin' your footsteps?
Don't fumble 'cause this ain't Sunday football
I ain't at home with a footrest
In fact I'm in front of the back of your head
But I'm comin' from behind, better look left
Look left like where the fuck is he?
You got time on your head boy
You got time on your head like you wearing buck fifty
Do it so clean but it's still so filthy, fuck with me
'Cause you already know you fuck niggas really can't really talk with me

Talking all that jazz
Talking all that jazz, telling all that truth
Nigga talk your shit, nigga talk your shit
Talking all that jazz

Talking all that jazz, telling all that truth
Nigga talk your shit, nigga talk your shit
Talking all that jazz

Talking all that jazz, telling all that truth
Nigga talk your shit, nigga talk your shit

Talking all that jazz might get you popped
But I ain't gonna stop don't A-S-K
Until I'm in a white drop top with a smile on my face
And a hand in the air like JFK

Wait, all in your steam
Better known as a hotbox
Crack rocks in a square, better known as block
Impaired tryna move that's hopscotch
Unfair one leg is a hell of a cock block
My nigga what an anomaly
My nigga look at the world, my nigga what a monopoly
Drop tops in the hood, and they sitting on 22's
Nigga still on section 8 though
Tricking on the low for a ho nigga
Momma at the crib tryna stretch a couple pesos
Couldn't paint a pretty picture with the tears and her makeup
Better get MAACO, makeovers help niggas make money
But I'mma always talk that James Moody
Most rappers these days is actors
And I can't keep watching the same movie
These niggas keep sharing the same models
And these models act like they ain't groupies
I ain't stupid, talking Duke
Ellington, Count Bassie, Monk and Dave Brubeck
I ain't stupid
Talking too eloquent, I ain't stutter, my nigga I ain't Ruben
Ginger ale for the hoes in champagne flutes
Tell one of them come pour me a glass
She don't act up, she can get this truth
Tell her ass read that while I roll this joint
Nigga tryna relax, 'cause the shit don't stop
I ain't tryna relapse to that whack bullshit
Niggas better evac when I drop
'Cause I swear that this black man ain't talking all that jazz

Talking all that jazz
Talking all that jazz, telling all that truth
Nigga talk your shit, nigga talk your shit
Talking all that jazz

Talking all that jazz, telling all that truth
Nigga talk your shit, nigga talk your shit
Talking all that jazz

Talking all that jazz, telling all that truth
Nigga talk your shit, nigga talk your shit

Talking all that jazz might get you popped
But I ain't gonna stop don't A-S-K
Until I'm in a white drop top with a smile on my face
And a hand in the air like JFK

That Coltrane, that Charlie Parker, that Charles Mingus
That Frank Sinatra
Talking all that jazz
Talking all that jazz
That Coltrane, that Charlie Parker, that Charles Mingus
Frank Sinatra
Talking all that jazz
Talking all that jazz

Best Music Video in a long time.

This video represents the current state of the Rap/Hip-Hop game, and how some rappers supply the product just for their own personal gain, while others do it so everyone else can have something to vibe with and enjoy.

Water represents purity.

The water that the dudes are selling is "pure" but notice how stingy they are about distributing it and how much they charge for just a half a cup of water. But the boys take it back to the crib, take their time bottling it up so they can give it back to the people, it's only then that the water is officially pure. Once they give it back to a few people, the rain comes, and everyone and get themselves, truly pure water. Because of that, the dudes who were selling it were essentially put out of business and into a state of irrelevance. That's symbolism.

In an essence: Mick is the rapper, delivering purity, honesty and powerful lyrics. Notice that his mixtape "The Water[s]" was/is available for free. Mick was more about getting the message out, and less about getting some profit in return. Whereas most of the mainstream rappers out right now lack a message yet they don't care because they're all about the profit. Once enough people "drink more water" (the water Mick is providing) the rains will come and EVERYONE can get his purity.

This dropped 7 years ago and it's still a vibe. I can't even nap the way the music game sleeps on Mick Jenkins.

Yeet Man

Fr, special vibe, lifts me up every time

Bobby Digital

@Rio G yeah i just heard this shit bout a year ago. Late to the party, but at least i still made it.

Rio G

The ones who slept are too late. Mick is dangerous to society

Daniel Franco

I only found this guy when I was with my ex and he is power

Marshall Eriksen

If you told me to go create the perfect rapper in a laboratory, this dude would be my prototype. Tyler the Creator type voice. ASAP Rocky type flow. Kendrick type lyrics. This dude will blow up soon.
