Vic Mensa dropped off myself and many other’s radar in recent times. He caught some heat for his freestyle taking shots at the late XXX Tentacion some time ago and it seems like things didn’t get any better for the young emcee.
The Chicago native has emerged with a new EP titled “V TAPE”. It may have been some time since I visited some of his music, but this project has Vic in his element, reminding everyone that he can still hold it down on the mic. He’s still providing substance and has a socially conscious tone that balks in the face of the current wave.
The project has 7 tracks and features from SAINt JHN, BJ The Chicago Kid, Snoh Aalegra, Eryn Allen Kane and Peter Cottontale.
It is great to hear new music from Mensa. It sounds like he’s hungry and ready to step fully back into the game.
