Since his departure from Kids These Days, Vic Mensa‘s independent singles have only elevated him to one of the shining young artists in Chicago along with his Savemoney brother Chance the Rapper. Didn’t we all see this move coming at some point (maybe not this soon, but still)?

Although the video to “Did It B4” was released two weeks ago, I thought I would repost the track now that Vic has released the official CDQ for download through his Soundcloud, embedded below. Although I’m not sure how well he will be without his soulful backups, we can expect a more piercing, swifter music from him, that we have not seen up to this point. Look for his Closed Sessions independent release Innanetape to be released at some point this summer.
