Vic Mensa and Kanye West’s aggressive new visuals for their collaborative single “U Mad” perfectly match the harsh vibes the music. Deep within some mystery, dimly-lit room, Yeezy slouches out from the darkness brandishing a crowbar, while Mensa starts a riot, writhes in a straightjacket, and stares down a bull. Watch the wild visuals for “U Mad” after the jump.

A lot has been happening for the 22-year-old Chicago emcee as of late. For starters Vic Mensa performed with Kanye West on Saturday Night Live, delivering a hook on ‘Ye’s forthcoming “Wolves” track (set to appear on So Help Me God) followed by some turned up live performances with the man. The live performances were for a track entitled “U Mad,” which recently got released as a single. In addition, Mensa also signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation recording label. That’s huge. So, yeah, evidently Mensa is doing quite well for himself on the mainstream end right now. Mensa also stopped by to team up with LA Leakers for an exclusive freestyle over Future’s anthemic Monster cut “Commas.” Check it out after the jump!

The world is fiending for some new Kanye West. “Only One” wasn’t enough. “All Day” wasn’t enough. His guest appearance on Big Sean’s new album wasn’t enough. Everyone waiting for that So Help Me God to drop. Whenever that’ll happen. If ever. And now the song Vic Mensa has been teasing for over month is finally here. “U Mad” is a collaborative track between Mensa and ‘Ye. It features production from ‘Ye, Mike Dean, Smoko Ono, Stefan Ponce and Charlie Heat. That’s a whole lot of muscle to come up with such a deceptively simple track that sounds like it’s fit more for 2012 than 2015. Anyway, I won’t judge. You be the judge. Check it out after the jump.

Undoubtedly the part of the annual BET Hip Hop Awards that hip-hop heads prefer: the cyphers.

As the heady half of the SaveMoney crew, Vic Mensa has been going all the way left of expectation for his first project. It’s like 2009 Asher Roth on speedballs and Illmatic repeats. He has the frat boy fervor and the backpacker urgency and just enough R&B melody to make rhymes palatable. The new video after the jump.
