Mick Jenkins has dropped off his third studio album, Elephant in the Room via Cinematic Music Group.
The project includes previously released tracks “Contacts,” “Scottie Pippen,” and “Truffles,” and features artists and producers serpentwithfeet, Monte Booker, Saba, Tee-Watt, Thelonious Martin, and more.
In a statement, Jenkins said that the album focuses on unspoken personal and general truths regarding his life.
“From my estranged relationship with my father to friendships that don’t feel the same anymore to the even more basic idea of acknowledging that I need help,” he said. “We become accustomed to allowing none progressive qualities and truths to occupy so much space in our lives simply by ignoring them, or ignoring them despite them being right in our faces! I intend to face several of those dormant issues/topics head-ons in the hopes that others can, at the very least, identify with the spaces I’ve grown from.”
Elephant in the Room follows his 2020 EP The Circus and his 2018 album Pieces of a Man.
