Vic Mensa at Terminal 5 earlier this month (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Vic Mensa

Chicago rapper Vic Mensa first caught our ears when he appeared on "Cocoa Butter Kisses" off fellow Chicago rapper Chance the Rapper's Acid Rap mixtape, and then again when Chance in turn appeared on "Tweakin'" off Vic's Innanetape mixtape (which also featured Disclosure collaborator Eliza Doolittle, Ab-Soul, Thundercat, and others). We just caught Vic in NYC on his tour with Disclosure, which is about to wrap up.

After that tour, he'll head to Europe on a tour with Danny Brown, but right before he leaves, he'll headline his own NYC show on February 18 at SOB's with local fave Nitty Scott, MC, plus Rugz D Bewler and KB Yung Hustle. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

All dates (including SXSW) are listed, along with a stream of Innanetape, below...

a lot of you are complaining about the genre cross. Shut up. If you have yet to realize there is a numerous amount of rappers doing the EDM/hiphop blend. Why? It appeals to another group of listeners, and still pulls some old fans. You have to grow your fan base, and that won't happen doing the same thing on every song. Pusha has one, Kid Ink has one, Gambino has one, ASAP Rocky has one. Hell, Turn Down For What is an EDM cross genre song. It's happening.
