Vic Mensa isn’t here for the games — at all. The Chicago native really cares about the culture. His sentiments can be heard in his socially-conscious wordplay and vicious lyrics. Basically, the Save Money rep is on a mission to bring lyricism back to the forefront of hip-hop.
Coming off the release of his EP, The Manuscript, Mensa recently hit up Cali’s LA Leakers — where the Roc Nation artist went stupid over Prodigy’s “Keep It Thoro” instrumental. Vic let off darts at hip-hop journalists, bloggers, as well as the XXL 2017 Freshman cover.
“Yeah, I’m talking all with your hoe a**/Shout out to XXL Freshman slow class/I’m a drop out though/Pick your crew better/I love you Vanessa, but you know it’s time to do better/Screw whoever/I will murder all of you together,” raps Vic. He goes on to salute MCs that he respects such as J.Cole, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar.
Mensa will headline New York City’s ‘Full Moon Festival’ on July 8.
