Moving on from his short-lived feud with 6ix9ine, Vic Mensa got back to music on Friday (July 27) and dropped off his latest single, the afrobeat-inspired "Metaphysical."
Produced by Papi Beatz and Stefan Ponce, the same man behind the house-infused "Down on My Luck," Mensa's latest single finds the rapper showing off his singing chops as he expresses his feelings for a woman. "I been, I been here, you been near/But I'm always there/Let me know if you get this/Loving you from a distance," an auto-tuned Mensa croons.
According to Vic, the song deals with desire and is inspired by his fathers Ghanian roots. "This is a song about desire. Admiration. Respect. Uncertainty. Surrender," the Windy City rhymer said. "Musically it's African, tribal. My father is Ghanian so I've wanted to take it there for a long time. I got Stefan Ponce who did 'Down On My Luck' for me and Papi Beatz and just spoke my truth into song."
In a series of Instagram posts from July 25, Mensa said, "See me and these fucking hands. No security. We seen you driving around Chicago with eight police. Shoot the one-on-one. See what happen to you, boy. I'll turn your muthafuckin' face the color of your hair."
The feud stemmed from Mensa claiming 6ix9ine stole the style of a number of Chicago artists while also beefing with them. But it appears the Roc Nation spitter has moved on, saying in a different video, “Honestly, fuck all that beef shit. I’m about positivity, peace, and the music over everything."
