As Vic Mensa Day draws closer to it’s end, we’d like to display another video of Vic murdering the mic. Back at the tail end of 2013, Vic was on his TV run and decided to hit up 106 & Park’s Backroom; the above slaughtering ensued. Peep the video above and keep an eye out for a few more before midnight.
Vic Mensa is probably Chicago’s fiercest lyricist right now. Dude’s ability to tear apart any beat is obvious now, if you aren’t sure what i’m talking about peep the video above and try to keep up.

Chicago’s own Vic Mensa will be hitting up SOB’s in New York City tonight for Hot 97’s, “Who’s Next Live”. The event will also feature the likes of Nitty Scott, Rugz D Bewler & KB Yung Hustle; with a DJ set from DJ Juanyto. We don’t usually post events that are as far out as NYC, but Vic is absolutely on fire right now. If you’re seeing this and you live in New York, you should definitely make it out for this one. Click the link below and keep an eye out for more from Vic Mensa.
It seems capitalizing off of the violence within the city of Chicago and it’s music scene, is the new cool thing to do. Noisey is embarking on an 8 part documentary that will spotlight Chicago’s underground rap scene as well as the city that breeds it. You’ll see the usual artists like Chief Keef & Lil Reese, but the documentary is also set to feature artists from Save Money. Peep the trailer above and keep an eye out for part 1, hopefully all of the attention on Chicago’s bad neighborhoods will lead to some good.
Last Friday, Vic Mensa & Tokyo Shawn of Save Money stopped by Sway in The Morning with Mibbs of Pac Div for a little freestyle session. Sway lets the artists go all the way in over multiple beats, Mibbs & Tokyo do their thing; but Vic Mensa clearly spits at a higher level. Peep the video above and stay tuned for more.
This video from Vic Mensa was released back in late September and received a lot of attention. While it was posted a while back, we figured it deserves some more recognition. Vic continues to gain more than a buzz as his fan base continues to grow from his music, yet some have somehow slept on his latest album, “INNANETAPE“. With all the wintery snow, we feel the song has a new meaning for a Lovely Day. Peep the video and check out more of Vic’s music here.

Vic Mensa is still riding the wave of success from his latest project the “Innanet tape”. He recently took over MTV’s Rapfix with A$AP Rocky & Bun B, blowing everyone away with a top notch freestyle; and now he has announced a headlining show at Chicago’s Reggie’s Rock Club. The show will also feature performances from Jean Deaux and The Hood Internet with special guests also supposed to take the stage. This should definitely be a good one, the Save Money crew is probably the hottest collective of artists in Chicago/ the Midwest right now. The show is all ages and tickets are only $10 bucks so if you’re in the CHI on December 7th you should definitely hit this one up.
Vic Mensa has been thoroughly enjoying the success of his highly acclaimed project the “INNANETAPE”, since it’s release he has hooked up with Adidas, the guys at ILLRoots, Sway & now Closed Sessions; for a video detailing the INNANETAPES creative birth. Featuring the likes of Peter Cottontail and Cam Osteen, the video showcases the importance of their relationships when it came down to undergoing this project. Peep the video above, you might learn something.
