[NEW] Vic Mensa continues the stream of new music with “All That Shines”

Vic Mensa has been one of the most controversial new artists out, as of late, and not for any legal reasons. The rapper that put out the Innanetape mixtape and singles such as “Wimmie Nah,” and “Down on My Luck” has, almost overnight, switched up his style. The word “sell out” has been thrown around a lot regarding his shift in style. I won’t weigh in too heavy on the subject but seeing his set at Pitchfork I definitely got the impression that he’s working towards radio singles. Whether that’s good or not remains to be seen. We’ll see what the future hold for Vic, for now check out “All That Shines” below. Art by Jake Osmun.
