He released two projects since being signed to Roc Nation and now, Vic Mensa finally releases his debut album.
It was on a promo tour for his last project “The Manuscript” that he had a tense moment on Everyday Struggle with DJ Akademiks and that wasn’t too long ago. However, he calls that project a capsule. It’s the project that was released today that he considers his first full length album. “The Autobiography” is a much longer and more personal project that he creatively treated as a complete album.
The album has features from all over the music spectrum including his Chicago contemporaries Joey Purp and even Chief Keef who is very different musically from Vic Mensa despite representing the same city. He has a feature from Pusha T, as well He has R & B features from Syd, Ty Dolla $ign, Pharrell, The-Dream, and even has features from poet/performer Saul Williams & rock group Weezer.
The story surrounding this album revolved around a diss line that Jay-Z urged Vic to take off the album and who it was directed at. However, the narrative might finally be directed back towards the music now that the album has finally dropped. You can thank No I.D. for how the album is sonically because he produced the whole album just like did for 4:44.
And, something is coming from him and Chance by the way. We don’t know what but, it’s something.
