After the release of Kids These Day’s debut album Traphouse Rock…everything seemed to just stop. I think the album never really took off as everyone imagined, the band had soooo much hype to live up to. In the end I felt like one of the few people that genuinely liked it. Well, people finally woke up after word spread that the Chicago band would be breaking up. All these guys are so young, it will be fun to see which projects they touch next.
I don’t think anyone was worried about the fiery spitter Vic Mensa. In perhaps his strongest solo effort to date, Vic drops visuals for “Orange Soda” – an ode to everyone’s favorite summer drink. Just in time! Off the kid’s upcoming INNANETAPE project, “Orange Soda” brings out a falsetto croon from Vic that results in Mensa’s best solo effort yet. This combined with his verse on Chance The Rapper’s “Cocoa Butter Kisses” really has me dialed into the rhymesayer of a band no-longer.
