Chicago’s Vic Mensa isn’t a name I would have necessarily expected to be writing up for DAD coming into 2014. The SaveMoney crew and Chance The Rapper associate though has impressively flexed his flow with a number of cuts across a bevy of styles. Just two months ago Mensa unleashed a left-field freestyle over Disclosure’s “When A Fire Starts To Burn” in which he dipped and dove through the track’s insta-nu-classic bumpin’ house vibes. Now he’s back with his own original with production from Stefan Ponce and goes deeper with a bit of that ’90s R&B and disco flavor as he sings about being “Down On My Luck” in regards to his trials and tribulations with women, his quest for fame, and what he does to deal with it: roll one up. Chill out to this and get on Mensa’s level and find solace in the vibes here and let them rise you up.
