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!
A long-awaited collaboration from hip-hop’s exclusive and alluring producer du jour (FlyLo) and its newest prodigal son (Kendrick). It delivers more on Flying Lotus and his schizo beat composition than it does on Kendrick’s lyrics and voice, which seem to wash under the bridge of this roomy production. And there are LA Leakers drops all over it. Listen after the jump.
Gambino fits well on this West Coast vibe, framing some of that bodacious pimp talk in his preppy vernacular. Problem jumps it off insistently and creates the urgency this pairing needs to succeed. Check the LA Leakers freestyle after the jump.
