vic mensa - innanetape

Now that the blogosphere has had time to recover from the massive shockwave that hit it upon the release of #INNANETAPE, I figured it was time to give my spin on things.

The tape starts with a sound reminiscent of Kids These Days, a live drum drum pattern and the screech of an electric guitar. However, the former KTD frontman does not play it safe by any means and is constantly pushing sound boundaries throughout the tape. Mensa calls on board fellow Chi-town representatives, Rockie Fresh, Chance the Rapper, and BJ The Chicago Kid to add some Midwest flare to the tape, as well as TDE conglomerate, Ab-Soul.

From top to bottom this project is one of my favorites of the year so far. Check out the stand-out tracks, “Orange Soda”, “Hollywood, LA”, “Holy Holy”, and “YNSP”, but be sure to give the full tape a listen!

vic mensa - time is money

Since Chicago rock/rap band, Kids These Days, disbanded a few months back, rapper Vic Mensa has been busy working and building up as a solo rap act. After the take off of childhood friend, Chance the Rapper’s, music it seems only right that Vic is the next to blow from Chicago.

“Time Is Money” is the newest blessing off of INNANETAPE, Vic’s forthcoming mixtape. The song features a verse from fellow Chi-town rapper, Rockie Fresh, as well as some killer production credits from Boi 1da & The Maven Boys. With two other singles already out, the project is shaping up to be a big one from the young emcee. Although one chapter of his music career has closed, a brand new chapter was opened and it seems that plenty of old and new fans have quickly flocked to his relatable lyricism and infectious sound.

Catch all of Mensa’s other music on his Soundcloud and come back -hopefully- soon for INNANETAPE. Savemoney.
