On December 14th, Vic Mensa will deliver a new EP titled Hooligans. First, he breaks out an emo-Punk-esque single titled “Dark Things,” which is accompanied by a visual that was probably meant to drop on Halloween. The Chicago artist also explained what fans can expect from the EP (courtesy of Beats 1/Zane Lowe):
“‘Dark Things’ is something that I wanted to make to represent those dark edges and recesses of my mind. On the Hooligans EP I really just wanted to represent different energies to show different sides of me, so this is a dark side. There’s records that are more fun summertime energy. There’s fight songs. There’s a record man, called ‘Deserve It,’ that’s one of my favorite songs. It’s an anthem for self-worth that I wrote so I can’t wait for you all to hear that.”
