Vic Mensa and Kanye West Flex on Haters in ‘U Mad’ Video
Vic Mensa is on the cusp of stardom. The 22-year-old rapper is proving that he's a formidable young threat with A-1 support backing him up. One of his major co-signs, Kanye West, crashed the party for his new single "U Mad" and joined him for the video.
The two Chi-town representatives join forces for Mensa's Grant Singer-directed video and soak in every moment of the party ambiance. A shirtless Mensa dances and prances around under black and red lighting all while poking fun at his detractors.
"Now I'm the villain, no really I'm just chillin' / Tryna stack these 20s, 50s, hundreds, millions, to the ceilin' / Mary, Mary all I need, p----, money, weed / And all my women in doubles, I'm at the DoubleTree," Mensa raps pretentiously.
Kanye is Kanye and as brash as ever. "I feel like MJ, I'm in his shoes / I'm talkin' Montell Jordan, this is how we do," he boasts. His streak of confidence and cockiness continues with lines like, "I think they finally think they got me where they want me at / I got 700 emails in my inbox / What that mean? / I ain't calling nobody back."
The Roc Nation signee's new album, Traffic,is slated for a 2015 release. Check the rhymer on his Traffic tour on June 19 at the JMBLYA Festival in Dallas.
