Mick Jenkins & The Underachievers AUS/NZ Tour 2018
Taking over Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Saturday, March 24 before playing Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, fans can expect full sets from both acts.
Local 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.
“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.
