Vic Mensa is seemingly in the process of dumping all the songs that didn't make the cut for Traffic via his current weekly Friday series. The series has produced such fine tracks as "I Been" and "Heat It Up Freestyle," and now it gives us "All That Shines," a reflection on his rapid rise to stardom. "They say that everything that glistens isn't gold," he croons on the chorus. "I know that this shit could come quick as it goes."
Produced by the motley crew of Vic, Stefan Ponce, Peter Cottontale, J. Hill, & Om'mas Keith, "All That Shines" announces its presence with some big-time warm synths before Vic hops on the mic.
Last night I saw so and so
She ain't even know me though
Love in the club, wanna dip with Lil Romeo
Looking for a nigga bringing five or more figures
She broker than a bitch
But she don't vibe with broke niggas
