Chief Keef, Pharrell, The-Dream Featured on New Vic Mensa Album
Vic Mensa's album is coming this summer, and when it arrives, fans will be able to listen to the Chicago artist collab with the likes of Chief Keef, Pharrell and The-Dream. Fake Shore Drive's Andrew Barber confirmed as much in a series of tweets earlier today (May 31). He's heard Vic's new project, and apparently, he's very impressed.
"It's Vic's BEST work to date. Better than INNANETAPE," Barber says of the Roc Nation MC's new project. "It's an open book & he even brings that old Roc sound back. No ID is the exec producer."
In another tweet, Barber claimed Vic's latest project will be in contention for album of the year before adding Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Joey Purp and Pharrell to the list of people Vic's collaborated with for the project. Needless to say, that sounds insanely dope.
If by "old Roc sound" Barber means the Roc-A-Fella Records sound, it will be interesting to hear the album and see what he's talking about. It's cool to see Keef's on Vic's album, considering they're both from Chicago. Considering the singing Vic's done in the past, it isn't hard to see how cool a new collab with him and Pharrell could end up being. Actually, Vic premiered a new track with Skateboard P at Wesleyan University just last week, and it sounded pretty fire.
We'll just have to wait for Vic's new album to drop if we want to learn too much more about it. Knowing what we know now, that's going to be kind of hard to do.
