Next rapper to explode out of the booming Chicago hip-hop scene is Vic Mensa who has just unleashed a genre defying new original. The new song "Down On My Luck" features some Disclosure-esque house production from Stefan Ponce. Vic switches between rapping and singing throughout all perfectly synched in tune with the dance inspired beat. The result is a unique combination of genres and styles that couldn't work better. With BBC DJ Zane Lowe debuting the track last night and it already having over 100,000 plays in less than 24 hours, it looks like this might be one of the hottest records for 2014 summer. Might this be a permanent new direction for Vic? Hear the full song below and pick up on it's release July 6th.
