Off his last project, Trees & Truths, Mick Jenkins releases the music video for “The Roots.”
If you haven’t heard the track, Jenkins’ deep vocals and flow fit perfectly over a smooth, jazzy sample. The eerie video has Jenkins rapping in a dimly-lit room, with the only source of light swinging back and forth like a pendulum. There’s also a man in the video digging for something and seeming to panic and not able to find what he’s looking for.
Check out the visuals below and look out for the Chicago rapper’s upcoming project, The Water(s).
