Mick Jenkins is back with a new single featuring GoldLink with a soulfully melodic production by Monte Booker and THEMpeople. While shouting out Jill Scott, Pressed for Time is a conscious narrative on making the time for a potential love interest. While the title and parts of the flow relay a notion of urgency, the chill and vibey beat puts the listener in a relaxed state, especially when broken down at the end.
“This song with GoldLink isn’t a preview of what’s to come. It’s just some dope shit we did a while back,” the Chicago rapper says. However, he updates with: “My next album is fully in the works. It’s different. I know y’all want that hard shit. Ima give it to you. I have two projects coming in 2017 actually.”
Jenkins goes on tour in April, and I can assure you that seeing the energy he brings to his live performance is worth it!
