For a while it looked like Chicago was going to be known to this generation for it’s super hood, grimy artists like Chief Keef. But now with the Keef buzz gone (Thank God), and the emergence of Chance The Rapper, it looks as though we may actually have a couple of other Chicago talents on the rise; some that can rival the success of Kanye West. We just mentioned Chance The Rapper, but little people know Vic Mensa yet. And that’s another to watch as we approach 2014.
Right now, Vic Mensa is on tour, opening for J. Cole’s ‘What Dreams May Come’ Tour. He piqued the interest of J. Cole thanks to songs like “Orange Soda”, which channels classic Outkast vibes, and “Hollywood LA”. And now, Vic Mensa has dropped his newest mixtape, INNANETAPE, and this one is for sure the one that catapults him to the next level. With features from Chance The Rapper, Ab-Soul, BJ The Chicago Kid, Jesse Boykins III, and production from Hit-Boy & Boi-1-da, INNANETAPE is one of the strongest tapes to drops this year.
