Mick Jenkins X Music Hall of Williamsburg Pieces of Man Tour

Mick Jenkins’ Pieces of a Man album borrows heavily from the title and tone of Gill Scott-Herron, one of his earlier albums inspirations. The Chicago rapper explores religion, consensual sex, and himself throughout the album which induces an introspective investigation of self from its listeners. Lifting its name from the 1971 classic by Gil Scott-Herron the album attempts th daunting task of channeling the bohemian beatnik’s indomitable spirit. Jenkins even gives us a pretty good impression, morphing his voice to match Scott-Herron’s distinct tenor for two skits that double as live spoken-word sessions. The Music Hall of Williamsburg has a classic feel that solidifies the atmosphere suggested in Pieces of a Man. Central themes have defined Jenkins’ previous full-length albums and Pieces of a Man is no different. If Scott-Herron was like a photographer, snapping society from never before seen angles, Jenkins turns the lens on himself. The result illuminate the title: We get all the pieces that make up the man. Using mirrors and imagery suggesting his own self reflection the imagery I utilized to bring that message forward includes a set design indicative of that very imagery. The animation included in the work is also filled with reflective 3D elements that he mentions in his album juxtaposed to natural landscapes suggesting some of the scenery included in Pieces of a Man album art.
