This past weekend, we went to Lollapalooza with our guy Mick Jenkins. If the size of his mid-afternoon crowd served as proof, Mick has experienced quite the breakout year. Since the release of his latest mixtape The Water[s], Mick signed to Cinematic (a label run by Jonny Shipes, our favorite functional stoner), went on the Smokers Club Tour with Method Man and Redman, and collaborated with renowned artists such as Kaytranada.   

In this visual recap by Bryan Allen Lamb -- Mick's tour photographer and frequent collaborator of Greenroom -- you will see a progression of his day from the massive Lolla performance all the way through to an incredibly lit appearance at the official after-show with Hurt Everybody, performing their collaborative track "Social Network"
