I am ashamed to say that this album was my introduction to Vic Mensa. I knew the name but I had never paid him any attention before this album. I know, my loss.
It;s easy to dismiss him because of his age but his music shows the wisdom of an OG in a young man’s body. This will go down as one of my favourite albums, not just for 2017.
It is evident that Vic had creative control here, as opposed to most signed artists whose debut album is restricted to content that the label execs think will more commercially appealing.
I’m now officially a Vic Mensa fan after listening to this and I’m sure you will be too. Yeah, I know I’m sounding like a stan right now but, just listen to it and get back to me.
Below is my overall review of the album.
