Vic Mensa (Roc Nation)

WHAT IT IS: This Grammy-nominated artist released his highly anticipated debut album, The Autobiography, via Roc Nation/Capitol Records earlier this year. Executive produced by Jay-Z and No I.D., it features Pharrell, Weezer, The-Dream, Pusha T, Ty Dolla $ign, SYD, Chief Keef, Joey Purp, Dreezy, Saul Williams and more. The album is confessional to its core, with a narrative that spans the 24-year-old’s life. Mensa digs deeply into his past (“Didn’t I,” “Heaven On Earth”), demonstrating how it impacts his present (“Rollin Like A Stoner,” “Down 4 Some Ignorance”), and how to move forward with his future (“We Could Be Free,” “Rage”).
