CURRENT: Vic Mensa – “U Mad” (ft. Kanye West)

Vic Mensa gets the biggest co-sign a rapper can get in 2015, taking the lead on this absolute banger, featuring a verse and production by Kanye West (the song also features production credits for Smoko Ono, Mike Dean, and Stefan Ponce). On “U Mad,” Mensa sounds like he is in his element, not at once overwhelmed by the boisterous, pummeling siren blares and percussion behind him. “U Mad” certainly sounds like an event. Most importantly, it sounds alive.
