Mick Jenkins Songs

Channel Tres — “Weedman”
Channel Tres offered up his first 2020 track with “Weedman,” an ode to “going to the weed man’s spot” that’s too timely while most of the world is quarantined with cabin fever, lighting up or wishing they could.
Fivio Foreign — “Wetty”
Rising drill rapper Fivio Foreign released a video for “Wetty,” a song that had been buzzing for months in his native Brooklyn based off of a snippet he posted. He properly fed the anticipation for the single with a video that tells a sordid crime story.

Marlon Craft — “Mom’s Whiskey” Feat. Kota The Friend
Marlon Craft’s “Mom’s Whiskey” is as literal as it sounds. Over email, he divulged that, “I literally found a stashed bottle of my mom’s whiskey that she had hidden when I was looking for a pen. I found that beat on YouTube and it all just spilled out.” Brooklyn’s Kota The Friend matched Marlon’s reflection with his own personal verse, rhyming about the “rooftop of my hometown, where the sweet chick is my soul food.”
Sada Baby — “Outside” Feat. Trap Manny
Sada Baby probably has every viewer of his “Outside” video longing for the mundanity of simply being outside of their home. But luckily, his fans can listen to his energetic collaboration with Trap Manny as well as the rest of his Skuba Sada 2 project.
King Von — “Trust Issues” Feat. Yungeen Ace

Blacc Zacc — “Carolina Narco The Movie”
South Carolina rapper offered up a gripping short film entitled “Carolina Narco The Movie” to pair with his album of the same name, noting over email that he “wanted to create this film because nobody’s been dropping movies with their projects lately.” The film chronicles a drug crew’s rocky navigation of the unforgiving drug game.
Alfred. — “Prndl/Dr. Call”
Alfred.’s One Trick Pony EP is out today. Earlier this week, the ambitious artist released a double feature for his singles directed by Connor Barret. “Prndl” is a searing stream of consciousness, while “Dr. Call” shows off producer Clwdwlkr’s dreamy production.
Rockie Fresh feat. Casey Veggies and 24Hrs — “Feelings Hurt”
It’s been a while since Casey Veggies and Rockie Fresh’s Fresh Veggies joint project, but you wouldn’t know it to hear their new song. The chemistry they show remains intact, even with the addition of 24Hrs.
Pretty Ricky — “Body”
Pretty Ricky hasn’t released a music video in years. Their video for the sultry “Body” shows that they’re still as freaky as they wanna be, romantically crooning about “sucking on that body like an infant” on the single.
