Today the charged (and too often overlooked) rapper Mick Jenkins and the funk-tinged band the O'My's—both out of Chicago—come together to drop off a new track called "Peace of Mind," also featuring Jayin and production help from Carter Lang. According to Mick, the song came together casually: "I recorded this a while ago," he tells The FADER. "On a random day I went over The O'My's and made this hot shit with them." But it's much tighter than just a tossed-off jam—the O'My's mournful orchestration is tight, Mick's verses are sharp as ever. It's also kind of giving me "Love It Or Hate It" vibes? Listen below, it's real nice.
