Chicago native Vic Mensa gives a nod to Damon Wayans’ memorable ’95 big-screen character with the title of his new song, “Major Payne,” the first look off Vic’s upcoming Street Lights EP.

The former Kids These Days spitter—who dazzled us with last year’s free Innanetape—gets his flirt on over a synth-powered Michael Uzowuru production that’s (curiously) glow-stick ready. It’s not our teacup, but if you dig it, fistpump away.
