Alex Wiley, Mick Jenkins & Azizi Gibson Team Up on “Like MacGyver”

It’s always a good time whenever two of Chicago’s finest link up. On “Like MacGyver” Alex Wiley and Mick Jenkins trade bars over a trap beat produced by Mike Gao. German-born LA-based artist Azizi Gibson also hops on the track (peep his I’m Good on People EP here.) Gibson holds his verse down with a flow that keeps evolving, leading up to a melodic end. When it’s Wiley’s turn, he mixes clever double entendres¬†with introspection, fitting as many words as he can in between bars. Jenkins closes things out with a last verse that’s almost too dynamic to keep up with on first listen. Jumping around from Rick & Morty to puns about acne, he somehow gets these unconventional references to all make sense. Collectively, these three young artists explore the concept of making something out of nothing just like the song’s namesake would suggest.
