We caught up with rising-star Vic Mensa, who has a lot in the works. He revealed that he has new music coming the pike, including an UK release of a song entitled "Down On My Luck." He's working with Montreal DJ and producer, Kaytranada, who has been absolutely murdering with some of the best remixes in the EDM scene. Mensa spoke about his current European tour with Danny Brown. Don't worry, he's still got love for those of us here in the states, as he speaks candidly about the evolution of Chicago's rap scene. Mensa pays homage to those that helped pave the way, but makes sure to highlight that there is plenty of young talent carrying the torch.
