Vic Mensa – “Reverse”

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 24: Vic Mensa performs "We Could Be Free" during the March for Our Lives rally on March 24, 2018 in Washington, DC. Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators, including students, teachers and parents gathered in Washington for the anti-gun violence rally organized by survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14 that left 17 dead. More than 800 related events are taking place around the world to call for legislative action to address school safety and gun violence. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

Following 2017’s The Autobiography, Vic Mensa is back with his new song “Reverse,” produced by Marshmello and featuring G-Eazy. The song departs from the previous album’s social consciousness to remind us of his affinity to the high life. “Aston martin, push button motor/Migos on the ice, anti-sober/Don’t get hurt, throw that ass and put it in reverse.” he hooks over clanky metal thumps. The Bay area rapper continues the high-roller theme spitting “I get packages from Paris, drop that Fedex on my name/I get runway off the runway to the runway on the plane.”

The track resembles 2016’s “No Chill” era more than his latest with glossier beats and smoother lines but doesn’t stray from his usual jaded vox. He announced the collaboration on his Twitter with a screenshot of a text between the trio and telling fans to retweet.

The interim since his release last year hasn’t been idle, writing an Op-Ed on “oppression and abuse” in Palestine for Time as well as various festival appearances and concert dates. Stream the single below.
