Charles Hamilton and Vic Mensa are about as different from one another as underground-minded rappers can be.
Here goes another sit-down with Vic Mensa, also from his NYC press run. In addition to chopping it up with Sway In The Morning, the Chicago native chopped it up with MTV.
Vic Mensa is definitely coming up in the world, in part thanks to a major Kanye West co-sign (that includes a verse from Ye on his hard-hitting single "U Mad").
Back in February, Vic Mensa went from Freshmen to rising superstar after singing on Kanye West's "Wolves." He's now got 'Ye on his own record, "U Mad," and just last week, he signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation. And he hasn't even put out an album yet.
After a busy weekend that included the unveiling of his "Yeezy: Season 1" collection with adidas, Kanye West went to NBC Studios to perform on the 40th anniversary special of Saturday Night Live.
Vic Mensa has been experimenting with plenty of different production styles over the last little while, including rapping over Disclosure, and going full UK Dance with his mostly sung venture, "Down On My Luck".

Vic Mensa surprised everyone with his latest single, "Down On My Luck", a very uncompromising take on UK dance music. Vic keeps his swift delivery, but applies it to an entirely sung verse and chorus, complete with instrumental breaks and beat drops.
With Vic Mensa‘s solo career steadily on the rise, the exciting opportunity to travel across the world has opened up for him. During his run of tour dates with Danny Brown, the Chicago rapper had the chance to visit London’s own Proud Camden for a show.
While out in New York City today, Schoolboy Q, Vic Mensa, and Vado decided to visit MTV’s Rapfix Live studio and bless the stage with a freestyle for the viewers. Remaining seated, the three spittas went a capella and closed out the program on the mic.
