Vic Mensa is one of hip-hop’s hottest new kids. He was named one of XXL’s 2014 Freshman Class, along with his frequent collaborator and fellow Chi-Town native Chance The Rapper. He popped up alongside Damon Albarn during his Governor’s Ball performance. Plus, his first mix-tape INNANETAPE, was one of Complex’s Top 50 Albums of 2013 and got very positive reviews from hip-hop critics.
Now, Vic can claim another Chicagoan, Kanye West as his mentor. Kanye put him on his new track “Wolves” with Sia and Yeezy just premièred a second song with Vic in London reportedly called “U Mad”. That is a serious co-sign.
Lucky for everyone, we have the best way to get to know Vic Mensa before he takes over the hip-hop throne. Find out what his favourite swear word is and what lyric he wishes he had written in our new segment Guy Gush. Check it out here.
