New Music: Vic Mensa – “Danger”
Ade Guobadia | @majin_ade
As Roc Nation’s most promising new artist, Vic Mensa, has made it quite clear that he’s a core component of Chicago’s new school of rap artists and he’s proving himself once again on his most recent single “Danger.” Vic premiered the Papi Beatz produced track at Kanye West’s “Yeezy Season 3” fashion show/album listening party. Since the release of “Wolves” (featuring Vic Mensa & Sia), early last year, West has been vital in helping Mensa achieve wider success. On “Danger,” Vic sounds eager to transform his new audience from casual appreciators of his talent into the type of super fans who await new releases with bated breath. Mensa approaches every line with conviction and the high-energy beat highlights his passion without eclipsing his lyrics. Check the song out on Vic Mensa’s Soundcloud here.
