Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper were trippin’ long before Acid Rap, but this year definitely had a few more trips than usual. Rapping over an instrumental that would serve as elevator music if elevators transported us to other dimensions, the Chi-Town all-stars warp their words and their voices, transporting us to a limbo in which they simultaneously confront their pasts and their futures, not entirely of where they are, where they’re going or where they’ve been. All they have is their suitcases and what they’ve managed to keep from falling out in transit. If the Roman god Janus had an iPod, this would be his most played song. Listen below.
Side note: This cover art is fantastic. Long live DBZ.
