Vic Mensa – INNANETAPE (Cover Art + Tracklist)

posted by Oscar September 30, 2013


The day has finally come for Vic Mensa’s highly-anticipated INNANETAPE to drop (at 3pm CST). In these hours leading up to it, Vic has released the tracklist and unveiled the official cover art for his latest project.

Chicago’s local scene is highlighted and well represented on the new mixtape as Chance The Rapper, Rockie Fresh, Joey Purp, BJ The Chicago Kid and Lili K are all listed as featured artists.

From what I can see, we can definitely expect this mixtape to deliver on the Dopeness; let’s just hope this doesn’t break the  INNANET also. See the full tracklist after the jump. Continue Reading

Vic Mensa teamed up with Illroots and adidas Originals last night to celebrate the launch of INNANETAPE and Illroots3. The event was held at The Bakery at Lacuna Lofts and reached capacity before Vic hit the stage. Chase B was spinning as the crowd arrived. Once the crowd was packed in, Million $ Mano put on a dope set and kept the crowd entertained leading up to Vic’s set. Vic hit the stage soon after to perform joints like “Orange Soda,” the KTD-favorite “Don’t Harsh My Mellow” and a handful of new tracks off of INNANETAPE. Check out some more clips after the jump.

Video: Vic Mensa – “Lovely Day”

posted by Oscar September 26, 2013

Here’s another taste of what we can expect from Vic Mensa’s latest project, INNANETAPE. The video above is for his track “Lovely Day,” featuring a sunny hook and equally warm visuals. I’m digging this and it’s looking like it’s safe to assume that his new material will be seriously dope.

See the video above.
