On October 29 Mick Jenkins will release one of his most personal projects to date, Elephant in the Room.
Jenkins has described the album as an attempt to address various unspoken personal and general truths and how they have affected him and those around him. “From my estranged relationship with my father to friendships that don’t feel the same anymore to the even more basic idea of acknowledging that I need help,” he says. “We become accustomed to allowing none progressive qualities and truths to occupy so much space in our lives simply by ignoring them, or ignoring them despite them being right in our faces! I intend to face several of those dormant issues/topics head-ons in the hopes that others can, at the very least, identify with the spaces I’ve grown from.”
