Mick Jenkins & The Underachievers with Baro
Wednesday 21 March 2018
Calling all hip-hop junkies
Chicago’s finest wordsmith MICK JENKINS returns after a highly successful 2017 tour and this time he’s crossed state lines to partner with New York duo THE UNDERACHIEVERS for one massive hip-hop double bill.
Taking over Auckland’s Powerstation on Wednesday, March 24, fans can expect full sets from both acts.
Australian hip-hop favourite BARO currently rising through the ranks with single ‘Pretty’ will be support for all shows.
Currently fresh off the release of his debut studio debut album “THC (The Healing Component)”, Mick Jenkins, the Alabama-born- Chicago-raised rapper makes the personal political with smart rhymes.
Jenkin’s first release, 2013’s “Trees and Truths” mixtape caught the ears of Chicago’s scene-makers with its acid jazz-influenced production, biblical allegory and lacerating lyricism.
“The Water[s]” LP arrived a year later, a meditation on water as life’s truths it stands as Jenkins breakout project.
Propelled by viral smashes ‘So Devillish’, ‘Gold Soul Theory’ and ‘Herb Shuttles’, The Underachievers are making their way out of their Flatbush, New York home one rhyme at a time.
“Renaissance”, their current release explodes with feel-good energy with xxlmag describing it as an album that speaks to those more concerned with lyrical content, cementing their place as a reputable rap group.
