Vic Mensa – “Suitcase” (Feat. Chance The Rapper)
Frequent collaborators (and dual Mixtape Of The Week honorees) Vic Mensa and Chance The Rapper are two young Chicago MCs who’ve spent big portions of 2013 on the road. As such, they got together for one more 2013 single that muses on that time-tested theme of homesickness and the trouble that brews while you’re away. Chance steals “Suitcase” with his melancholy riff on “Hit The Road Jack” near the end, but both rappers are on fire here, and producer Cam Osteen has given them an expertly floaty daydream to flicker in. You ought to get this on your hard drive right now.
