Since Kids These Days, Vic Mensa has been an artist worth watching. On April 21st, 2015, Vic signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation. It was a incredibly quick rise for the 22 year old Chicagoan, who in the past three years has gone from a small timer to performing on SNL with Kanye West.
Call me crazy, but I don’t believe that signing to Roc Nation is the end all be all. When looking at the Roc Nation website I am astounded at the amount of names I don’t recognize. I’m not saying that these people aren’t talented or don’t deserve it, but at the risk of sounding uniformed I need to ask ; who are these people? What amazing things has Romans or Jay Electronica done since being signed to Roc Nation? I think that Vic Mensa is an incredibly prolific and hard working artist who has a lot to prove, but I am holding my applause with my fingers crossed hoping that he continues to drop bombs like egyptian cotton, feel that, and U mad.
