Vic Mensa Continues to Evolve With “Major Payne”

vic mensa down on my luck

Gearing up for the release of his Street Lights EP and for the love of free music, Vic Mensa’s released a new and unapologetic sex electro-jam called “Major Payne.” Produced by frequent collaborator Michael Uzowuru, more sung-than-rapped and with a rattling bass line and twinkling synths coursing throughout, it sounds almost in the vein of Jeremih. And aside from a single mention of Damon Wayans, it’s got nothing to do with the 1995 comedy. Mensa’s certainly come a long way since the “Orange Soda” days, and it’s not a bad thing. Street Lights is expected to be out sometime this summer. For more on the rapper who says “Mainly, I just wanna take shit over,” read Dan Hyman’s recent profile of him for FADER.
