Vic Mensa is back with another anthem. Vic‘s signature rubber-band, over-the-margin flow and passionate, on-edge delivery (heard best before on “Time Is Money“) are in full effect here, but it’s for a different purpose: as Vic puts it, this is a “let me talk my shit,” joint. If “Did It B4” announced Vic‘s solo presence, and “Orange Soda” and “Hollywood LA” established his predominant style, “YNSP” serves the purpose of being the Chicago rhymer’s theme song. Vic‘s part of the hook is devoted entirely to the title’s acronym: “Young Net Save Peso, Young Net Save Peso,” he chants, making a play on his album title, INNANETAPE, and his crew’s name, SAVEMONEY. Eliza Doolittle‘s hook is a little lacking, if only because it doesn’t stand too far out amongst the slew of other uplifting hooks like it. There’s plenty of Vic‘s distinctly flashy showmanship to go around though: “First off tell ’em Vic back / Bury the bullshit, niggas be signed and to be honest, yo I told No ID that shit whack / Wasn’t even tryna be arrogant, bury comparison to us, I mean it’s kinda just fact / Who could make the globe shift with a flow swish when i wrote this / I was on a plane feeling like David Blaine, blow ’em out the water when they try to put me in a box / Box with god when i throw fists.” It’s hard to flow over a Freddie Gibbs instrumental and carve out an equally impressive lane for yourself, but Vic did it. Also, if you’re seeing J. Cole and Wale anytime soon, you’re in to be rocked by Vic in the opening act.
