Vic Mensa revisits the Chi-Town house music sound with his new track, “Down On My Luck.” Produced by Stefan Ponce, who also worked with Chi-town native Chance The Rapper on “Good Ass Intro,” “Down On My Luck” is more uptempo than the majority of Mensa’s previous tracks. We have no complaints on the current switch in direction.
Vic Mensa has come a long way since his role in the group, Kids These Days. We interviewed the multi-talented artist last year on his feelings towards pushing his music back.
VM: “I think I spent a good deal of time in Kids These Days with the crutch of having other talented people to fall back on. Being together with a group of people that you feel are immensely talented, it’s a lot easier to take certain things for granted, you know. There’s the mentality of “We gotta make it.” I spent a lot of time in Kids These Days taking my own ideas for granted and pushing my own music to the back burner.”
Between the success of his recent project, Innatetape, and touring with Disclosure, Vic has a lot to look forward to for the future. As of yet, there is no word on his next project. For now, dance around your living room to Mensa’s new track “Down On My Luck” below.
