Mick Jenkins drops “’Carefree” music video

The Circus drops January 10.

January 07, 2020

Earlier this month, Chicago rapper Mick Jenkins shared a Black Milk-produced song called "Carefree" from his upcoming project The Circus. Today, the song appears in a new music video titled "Carefree 'Black Boy'," directed by Jack Begert. The first verse begins with the line "It just don't look like this / If you living carefree then you probably don't look like us," and the music video is imbued with a similar world-weariness and dotted with a few moments of dreamlike escape. Check it out above.

Mick Jenkins's new EP is out this Friday, December 10. "As a direct prelude to my forthcoming album," Jenkins said in a statement, "The Circus EP is a body of work about just that. These days it's very hard to look at the state of the world and popular culture and not see allegory that makes this metaphor our reality more often than not." Next week, Jenkins will kick off a tour of North America with EarthGang — see those dates below.
