Jazz
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Patience, I'm faded, like outdated denim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

Man I love your theory. This started as a small comment but I fucked it and went ham so if you got a few minutes, here we go:

I literally just sat here trying to diagnose random music videos and this one kinda bamboozed me. I thought the water represented money with the "make it rain" analogy at the end. But I also noticed that a common theme was "crime of opportunity". The money the people paid for water with would represent fame/exposure and they traded X amount of exposure for water (money). But everyone who was lucky enough to get some just happened to be near the truck. Same with the people on the corner, they just HAPPENED to be there and they try and take everything within reach and even chase the ones who were nice enough to give them the opportunity.
Then with the "make it rain" analogy at the end you notice that nobody is collecting water, they are just dancing in it.... The sidewalk on both sides of them are still dry and I dont think that was unintentional. I think It represents how people just stop giving a f**k when the immediate problem in their vicinity is solved... Its still hot and dry just outside of that rain circle. Mick takes the environment around him, gives the bottles (opportunity) to the boys and only takes what is needed - a sip of water, no money (fame/exposure) and sends them on their way as per the deal when he could EASILY take their stuff. I don't think that was unintentional either, basically saying Mick could take control at anytime but out of respect, doesn't. In turn the boys try to give away the water (money) to those in need around them in the barren hood. The people so desperate for water(money) just take advantage of these boys as mob mentality because everyone else around them will take 4 bottles each and they will leave thirsty if not....
When the boys realize their mistake and run away - OOHH DUDE I JUST FIGURED IT OUT AS I WAS TYPING! - Mick Jenkins is the one who makes it rain and saves the boys! THATS WHY THERES NO WATER ON THE SIDEWALKS PAST WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE! Mick "made it rain" to help those kids with good intentions out. Hence Mick only takes a sip of water to cover his thirst from grabbing the bottles for the boys, as is only fair so he doesn't do what the boys did - give away something for nothing and get taken advantage of. Mick has a hidden supply of his own water that he used to help those with good intentions in his hood(the music industry?).... to teach them a lesson to never show your hand / and how everyone is happy having a little water thrown on them at the same time when they were mobbing a second ago because some only got 1 bottle, or 2 bottles, or no bottles.... it wasn't distributed properly.
So never allow open access to your supply. Those guys in the beginning left their source open for 20 seconds and 2 kids who were ready for the opportunity swooped in and made off with their loot. Had they been more humble like Mick, nobody would have known they had supply of water, and thus the opportunity to have it taken from them wouldn't have shown itself. And in the end, nobody except the boys know that Mick was the one that saved them, as it is obviously no coincidence he is there in their time of need.
I feel like 50% of this is targeted towards the music industry not allocating exposure / money correctly or its a stab at government run financial distributions in North America / the world today.

I think I might need to relax more.....
