Vic Mensa was a super bright spot for Chicago’s music scene sometime ago, and then for a while he just disappeared. Shows here and there, a Twitter rant every now and again, but little to no music. Today he’s back with The Manuscript, an EP, preluding his debut album which is set to drop this Summer.
With only 4 songs total on the EP, Vic has to make a statement with each song and he does just that. He dishes on the topics he usually raps about, ranging from Chicago and its violence to being pro black, all the way to riding around with no roof. He calls on the likes of Pusha T, Pharrell, and even Mr. Hudson to feature and it all works out in his favor.
On The Manuscript, Vic meshes a bunch of different styles so it’s hard to see what direction his debut will go in. He goes a little Rock on “Rage,” a little druggy on “Rollin’ Like A Stoner,” and he’s all bars on “OMG.” He clearly has a lot of different styles to use, so it’ll be interesting to see exactly what he brings out for the debut. Until then, we can enjoy these 4 tracks.
The EP was released via Roc Nation, and you can enjoy it all above.
