Mick Jenkins Takes No Prisoners On New Track Bruce Banner

Tuesday, 07 August 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Mick Jenkins has dropped a new track.

Bruce Banner, named after the alter ego of the Incredible Hulk, is the first new material to emerge from the Alabama hip-hop star since the second instalment of his 'Or more' series arrived earlier in the year. His last album was 2016’s 'The Healing Component'. 

Jenkins shared the song as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1, also telling the DJ that a new project called ‘Pieces of a Man’ is expected in the autumn. It’s set to feature a collaboration with Corinne Bailey Rae.

Bruce Banner, meanwhile, is a pointed piece that opens with the line "I'm not a rapper, I'm a writer." Jenkins is combative over a rolling beat from producers Nez & Rio. "Honestly, can't nobody come for me 'cept Kendrick, and I hope you offended," he spits.

Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.

But then we also have bands like Puppy, who are able to cast that whole argument in the comic light it often deserves.

Conjurer are a great anomaly within British heavy metal. In a genre where everything is divided into subsects—from glam to deathcore—these fresh-faced aggressors are all about demolishing boundaries and simply smacking the listener in the face with guitar-driven brutality.
