Have you been fiending some new Mick Jenkins? Yeah, we have been too. Following his breakout mixtape The Water[s] from earlier this year Jenkins has been relatively quiet. Sure, he’s dropped some dope features here and there as well as various loosies (including the very good “Fate”) but we’ve been craving some solo Jenkins material. But it looks like today we’re receiving a treat in “11″ a new solo Mick Jenkins cut. Produced by NIFDproductions, the powerful track is named after the amount of times Staten Island native Eric Garner said “I can’t breathe” before his untimely death at the hands of police officers. Listen to Mick Jenkins’ “11″ after the jump.

Poison Pen’s something of a utility man in this rap game, capable of playing any position well while representing Bed Stuy to the fullest. Whether he’s ripping stages with the likes of Immortal Technique and Diabolic, hosting or judging any battle that means something, or just straight-up recording, Pen remains a force to be reckoned with. After this interview was conducted (early September 2014), Pen lost his Rebel Armz brother J-Arch over Thanksgiving and recently hosted his tribute show and has been helping raise money for J-Arch’s family. While we don’t talk about this in the interview, Pen does touch on the battle rap game, being pulled from judging the Hollow-Joe Budden battle at Budden’s request, his upcoming album with Chino XL, his writing process, the overuse of hand sanitizer, and much more in this insightful interview.
