Vic Mensa has been quietly working on his follow-up to 2013’s INNANETAPE, and tonight, it’s finally arrived.
The Roc Nation signee shares There’s Alot Going On, a seven-track project featuring his lead single "Danger." Produced entirely by Papi Beatz, his second solo release features a collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign on "Liquor Locker," a feel-good anthem with Ty crooning about sipping too much with a girl he likes. If you’re looking for trap vibes, Vic’s got you covered with "New Bae." The project takes a serious note on "16 Shots" that could arguably be the project’s standout, as it is dedicated to Chicago teenager Laquan McDonald, who was shot 16 times by police officer Jason Van Dyke in 2014.
The Chicago rapper continues to build momentum after linking up with Kanye West last year on "U Mad." Now that’s There’s Alot Going On out, expect to hear more from Vic soon, as he gears up to release his long-awaited Traffic debut. You can stream the project here. Be sure to check out Vic's new video for the title track, "There's Alot Going On," which features Vic rapping straight at the lens before a surprising set of gun shots goes off and ultimately reveals the album art, below.
