Jay-Z introduced Vic Mensa, his Roc Nation signee, at Vic’s album release party on July 13 in Los Angeles, and Hov praised the young artist’s upcoming album.
When introducing Vic Mensa, Hov said, ““Vic is a very special talent. 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.”
Mensa then took to the mic to expand upon his views for his new project, The Autobiography.
“This album is called The Autobiography. This album is really my blood, sweat, and tears, and everything that I’ve learned up to this point in life… I kind of had to go through a lot of different things to even be able to put this album down on wax… When I talk about this album, I often say that somebody listening to it would know me better than a casual acquaintance that has known me for twenty years, if you listen to this album and really digest it. The things that I’m saying on there are so personal and real to me, but I wanted to make it in a way that everybody could relate to those situations to their own lives… This is just my story, The Autobiography.”
Vic’s album will be dropping July 28, and will have guest appearances from Pharrell and Chief Keef to Weezer and more.
