[MUSIC NEWS]: What’s Next For Vic Mensa

A lot has happened for the SAVEMONEY rapper since dropping INNANETAPE almost 2 years ago.

The Chicago native and former Kids These Dayz member was rumored to be preparing his debut EP Street Lights . He was a part of the XXL Freshman class, and has been touring nonstop.

Vic was on J. Cole’s “What Dreams May Come” Tour along with Wale, and performed in Europe on Danny Brown’s tour. Mensa also has released collaborations with other artists here and there. Most notably, Vic’s recently been doing a lot of work with Kanye West.

Vic is featured on “Wolves” off Kanye’s upcoming album. They performed the track on Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary episode in February. The song was also played during Kanye’s Adidas Originals fashion show, YEEZY SEASON 1. While in London, Vic Mensa was apart of Kanye’s epic premiere of his new single “All Day” at the 2015 Brit Awards.

They also performed a new track called “U Mad” together at a show in London.

 

There hasn’t been much word on Vic’s EP in over a year, but his single “Down On My Luck” has been out since last summer and has been doing well on the European charts.

Hopefully with this boost from Kanye we’ll be getting some new Vic. He’ll be performing at Coachella, Soundset Fest, and Pitchfork.  Until then educate your self on the young rapper and check out his mixtape and latest music video below:

BIG SEAN – DARK SKY PARADISE REVIEW

It’s hard to believe Dark Sky Paradise is only Big Sean’s third studio album, but the long-awaited project serves as the Detroit emcees best project to date.

The album is full of anthems that anyone can easily relate too. Sean holds nothing back on this record. The tone of the album is heavy and dark with the power and honesty he puts in every word. One example is “Win Some, Lose Some” where Sean bears all; even about almost losing his career. The Detroit native even includes snippets of a conversation with his dad which adds to the realness of the album.

In the first track “Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)” you hear Sean’s father say “Sean it’s good to be home isn’t it?” This album is like a homecoming for the rapper, and he details it throughout the record. From coming up with Finally Famous and transitioning from making it with Hall of Fame, Big Sean shows that he’s come into his own with Dark Sky Paradise.

The album definitely delivers from the 4-track tease Big Sean delivered back in September.

Production of the album easily falls in with the most notable of 2015 so far. Nashville’s own KeY Wane, Kanye West, Nate Fox, Travis $cott, and Boi-1da are just a few of the many notable producers who had a part in creating the project. Each song easily flows into the other which makes it hard for anyone to even think of skipping a track.

If the production doesn’t keep you, Big Sean’s wordplay and metaphors have you locked into every word. The G.O.O.D Music rapper has always been clever in his verses, but his flow and the way he rhymes given the subject matter he fits into the album takes that to another level.

If giving us the album wasn’t enough, Sean also released a freestyle prior to its release.

Big Sean is definitely setting the bar early in 2015 with Dark Sky Paradise. Check out what he had to say about the album on The Breakfast Club here.
