Vic proves his bars are still top-notch.
Savemoney is not playing fair. #SavemoneySummer continues its takeover as Towkio drops the video for his song "Playing Fair" ft. Joey Purp. The video shows the Savemoney crew hoopin' in Chicago, with multiple appearances from Vic Mensa. The track appears on Towkio's latest project Community Service 2. Check it out after the jump.
Roc Nation's premiere young'n is back with some more tunes. After sharing a string of cuts in "Heir to the Throne," "Heat It Up," and "I Been" (all these arrive after "U Mad" and "No Chill") the Chicago upstart is back with "All That Shines," which like the other tracks, may or may not be appearing on his forthcoming debut album, Traffic. In the meantime check out "All That Shines" from Vic Mensa after the jump.
Vic Mensa is one confused artist: There are too many hands in the cookie jar. For one, his INNANETAPE project from 2013 positioned Mensa as an artist ready to blow without the necessity of conformity. And now -- with two years removed from his breakout tape -- he's nothing but a conformist and corporate shrill. (This pain's me to say, by the way.) Or, at least that's the vibe he's been giving off with his last few tracks. For starters, Mensa signing with Jay Z's highly-questionable Roc Nation label was bad move, albeit very smart; ever since the signing he's been making some abysmal moves musically speaking and his trajectory is noticeably... out of the ordinary, too. The highly-anticipated "U Mad" with Kanye West basically flopped and sounded like some terrible Steve Aoki sh*t from 2012. Then he dropped nonsense like "No Chill," which I've yet to hear because, well, didn't you see the song's internet meme-baiting title? No thanks. He's probably released more music since but I'm over it. And here's yet another Roc Nation-era Vic Mensa cut -- it's called "I Been." I haven't listened yet but don't let my opinion on him sway you from peeping "I Been" after the jump.
