Chicago rap up-and-comer Vic Mensa has lately been working on his official debut album Traffic, and we’ve posted recent tracks like “All That Shines” and “I Been.” And today, he shared a new track called “Married To The King Freestyle,” as Rap-Up points out. It’s not an actual freestyle, except in that it doesn’t have a hook and it’s just three minutes of rapping-ass rapping. But it’s got an original beat from producer Deputy, a rubbery digital thing. And Mensa rides it with an breathless intensity. Listen below.
I wouldn’t expect to hear Traffic before the end of the year, but who knows?
