Almost a year after Vic Mensa dropped his well-received debut album, The Autobiography (included in Ambrosia For Heads’ Best-of ’17 list), he is still putting in work like he was an unsigned MC. Then, at the top of June, he released the lead single from his sophomore called “Reverse,” and featuring G-Eazy. The Pop sensibilities of the track seem to reflect that Vic is after a broader audience, years after his post in band, Kids These Days. His content is a little more focused on jet-setting and being fashion-forward than the first time around.
To get the promotion machine warmed up, Mensa stopped by the LA Leakers’ Lift Off radio show to drop a monstrous freestyle. He showed up in a white tee with Chanel suspenders and was ready to go pronto. He announces that he produced the beat that is playing, which is driven by machine gun hi-hats and a vocal sample courtesy of En Vogue’s Organized Noize-produced 1997 smash, “Don’t Let Go (Love).”
