Mick Jenkins and Kaytranada Share New Song "Designer Frames"
Congrats are in order for Jenkins' "Grammy award winning brother"
Published Mar 16, 2021Earlier this week, Kaytranada made history as the first Black artist ever to win the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album with BUBBA, and frequent collaborator Mick Jenkins has shared a new song with the Montreal-based producer in celebration.
"Designer Frames" arrives today through Jenkins' SoundCloud page, and you can hear it below.
Kaytranada's propulsive beat leaves enough room for Jenkins to nimbly weave bars between shakes of a tambourine. At one point, he raps, "It's Parmesan in my pocket / I know the jacket was lamb / And I got the top in Japan" from behind his four-figure Cazal glasses.
"Congrats to my Grammy award winning brother Kaytranada," Jenkins wrote in the caption, adding that he has an "album on the way."
Of course, Jenkins featured on BUBBA's "Grey Area," and had previously teamed with Kaytranada on songs including "Frontstreet," "Padded Locks" and "Understood" from his 2018 album Pieces of a Man, in addition to "Your Love" and "P's & Q's" from 2015 mixtape Wave[s]. He previously shared with Exclaim! that he met Kaytranada while grabbing poutine in Quebec's most populous city.
