After releasing the video a week or so ago, Chicago’s Vic Mensa let’s the song go for everyone to have. Be on the lookout for INNANETAPE soon. Track produced by Vic Mensa and Peter Cottontale. Check out the video by clicking here.
Just as news of that one of the most talented hip-hop-bands I’ve had the pleasure of hearing hits my phone, the former lead man of such group, Vic Mensa, let’s go a brand new video that will be on his upcoming INNANETAPE release. You can also read a small blurb of what he had to say about the breakup below, and check the full-length interview here at XXL. It’s a shame, but things happen.
It’s never going to be an “I hate you” type of situation. For the most part it’s a happy settlement. There were certain moves made by some people that weren’t all the way stand-up moves, but at the end of the day there isn’t really any bad blood. It’s not like I can’t be in the room with everybody in the band, and I wish everybody the best. But the band breaking up wasn’t my ultimatum, I didn’t bring that to the table, but once it was brought to the table it kind of opened up a world I’d already been living in in my own head for a while. I just see it as a great opportunity. Kids These Days was great and it was a lot of fun, but now I want to do something different. And I produce now, too.
