My head almost exploded when I saw that this song was coming out. Vic Mensa: one of Chicago’s most slept on rappers, and KAYTRANADA: the Future-Soul prodigy from Canada… ON THE SAME TRACK.
Yeah. I yelled it like that when I saw it solicited on Vic Mensa’s Twitter last week, prior to the record’s release.
Vic Mensa and good friend Chance The Rapper have been making quite a bit of noise in the hip hop market for a while now, but the being on the cover of XXL definitely isn’t to be overlooked for their more recent popularity. Similar in rap style, Vic tends to be the more lax side of the sound that Vic and Chance have coined.
KAYTRANADA has been in the scene for years, making himself a mainstay in the streaming video party known as the Boiler Room. His versatility is uncanny, and his patch choices are second to none.
Putting these two cats together, it was bound to ignite something.
Peep the record below and leave your thoughts in the comments.
