In the wake of announcing his upcoming album The Autobiography, Vic Mensa has shared another taste of the project. “Wings,” which features Pharrell and Saul Williams, finds Vic spitting bars over a shifting beat. Lyrically, Vic is reflecting on his path to success, strolling down memory lane and asking himself some tough questions.
With Skateboard P handling production and additional vocals, Victor reintroduces himself to the world on “Wings.” “I got so many issues, I should be my own publisher,” he raps. “The beat is my therapist, Skateboard, paint the picture / A portrait of the artist formerly known as Vic / I read the signs, I was close to overdose like Prince.”
After Mensa explores suicidal thoughts and self-doubt with vivid imagery and passionate delivery, Saul Williams adds vocals to the song’s poetic outro.
“Vic is a very special talent,” said Hov during the event. “He can do everything. Sing well, rap well, he even engineers himself sometimes. He’s an incredible artist, like a once-in-a- lifetime artist.”
The Autobiography is due July 28.DOWNLOAD Vic Mensa – Wings Ft. Pharrell & Saul Williams
