In anticipation of Mick Jenkins’ full-length debut, Jenkins has provided us with a sample of what he’s been working on. “The Artful Dodger” sees Mick team up with a star-studded producing crew: Kaytranda, THEMpeople, and BADBADNOTGOOD all contributing to the spacey, two-sided beat. We are expecting this track to be the first offering from his upcoming debut album [T]he [H]ealing [C]omponent. “The Artful Dodger” is actually a cunning pickpocket born from the pen of legendary English writer Charles Dickens. Mick harnesses the quick wit of the Dodger with clever lines like
Niggas rolling like some cheapskates
I see kids talking work with empty briefcase
We put the beef on the buzz and call it sweepstakes
Then roll a joint like a nigga need a knee brace
