Just days after his LA Leakers freestyle, Vic Mensa has released a new song, “10K Problems”. The track, which appeared shortly ago on soundcloud, is a bare-your-soul style record, and ends very dark with Vic imagining sitting in first class with a plane going down. Vic has worn his heart on his sleeve throughout his music career, and also carries the weight of deep concern for social issues and social justice on his soul.
On “10K Problems”, Vic shares his struggle with staying sober, pressures from the music industry, friends double-crossing him, relationships, and his father’s health. This one gets deep. I hope that putting it all out in the music has served as some kind of comfort for Vic.
