Today we have a powerful new collaboration between Vic Mensa and rising artist Emmit Fenn on their new track “Pouring Rain.” Emmit Fenn is a talented singer, songwriter and producer who has impressed us time and time again with his latest effort tapping into the hip-hop side of things as the first single off his forthcoming project.
Over the years Vic Mensa has grown to be increasingly political with his music and platform as he’s just made a statement to Rolling Stone saying “I am a gun owner, and I vehemently support gun control” and further builds on this mindset here. Fenn paints the perfect subdued foundation on “Pouring Rain” with his beautiful piano melodies, skittering percussion and moody vocals setting the tone for the somber track. Vic’s storytelling and wordplay is as sharp as ever as he paints the picture of senseless violence and crime in the US further brought to life by the striking music video directed by Bobby Hanaford. Stay tune for more off Fenn’s forthcoming project and enjoy!
