Vic Mensa has been saying all the right things lately, and by right things, I really just mean speaking his truth. While he’s been socio-political aware from the start of his career, his debut album The Autobiography adds some more layers to his stature. At 15 tracks, all of which are under the watchful eye of No i.D., Vince calls on everyone from Pharrell and Pusha T to Chief Keef and Syd to simply tell his story.
