“The Autobiography: as told by Vic Mensa” is officially out. A few days ago the Chicago rapper released his truth to the masses. This art is Mensa’s debut album and a damn good one I might add. The project is personal, and unapologetically bold. I appreciate that immensely. The album touched on topics even in the political sphere.
For this first album his guest appearances range from artist such as Weezer, Pharrell, Saul Williams, Ty Dolla $ign, Syd, Joey Purp, The-Dream, and Chief Keef. Although a spokesman for Chicago, to celebrate the release of his album he invited everyone to come to his album signing in New York City. The album gives you 15 tracks with lyrical content and good production. In an interview with NPR, when asked what his purpose is, he replied: “I think first of all my purpose is to be me. I didn’t come here to specifically be a role model or anything.”
Authenticity is the best thing to give fans as an artist; to be true to self and true to others. Great job Vic Mensa.
