Mick Jenkins Energetic Visual Will Make You "Get Up Get Down"

That “back in the days when I was young, I’m not a kid anymore but some days I sit and wish I was a kid again” back to school nostalgia has set in for everyone as Elementary to College level classes kick off the brand new school year. Mick Jenkins takes that feeling and combines it with the classic hip hop vibe associated with Adidas suits, B-boy stances and music that motivates in his brand new visual for “Get Up Get Down“.

The Chicago representative released the uptempo video a few days ago but we felt as if it may be even better to jam and lift you up after the long Monday you may have had. If the young kids starring in the video that embody “Hip Hop” don’t get you moving – just take Mick Jenkins advice as he raps “Get Up, Get Out, Get Down” as you take on the rest of your week with purpose.

Check out the visual below and you haven’t had a chance to listen to his new project ‘Waves‘ we have you covered. Of course, you can grab it via iTunes here afterwards as well.
