24-year-old Roc Nation phenomenon Vic Mensa is on the verge of global greatness. His debut album The Autobiography is a culmination of his life experiences, woven into one genius narrative. Mensa digs deeply into his past (“Didn’t I,” “Heaven On Earth”), proving how it affects his present (“Rollin Like A Stoner,” “Down 4 Some Ignorance”), and how to move forward with his future (“We Could Be Free,” “Rage”). Strategically sequenced from start to finish, the project discusses love and loss, while also tackling Mensa’s struggles with addiction and depression. With production from Pharrell Williams, No I.D., and 1500 or Nothin, plus guest appearances from the likes of Ty Dolla $ign, Saul Williams, and Chief Keef, Vic Mensa has crafted an intensely intimate sonic memoir with The Autobiography.
Raised on the South Side of Chicago, Vic Mensa first came into fame in 2013 as part of rap collective SAVEMONEY. He has since forged a path for himself, earning a spot on the coveted XXL Freshman cover in 2014, bookended by his critically acclaimed INNANETAPE (2013) and There’s Alot Going On (2016). The Autobiography(2017) is his first full-length project.
