Vic Mensa’s been in the lab recently and has decided to give fans a musical look into his family lineage.
A Chicago native, part of his roots come from West Africa – and to celebrate his heritage – Vic’s decided to dedicate his new song “Metaphysical” to his father.
“This is a song about desire. Admiration. Respect. Uncertainty. Surrender. Musically it‘s African, tribal,” he said in a statement to BET.com. “My father is Ghanian so I’ve wanted to take it there for a long time. I got Stefan Ponce who did ‘Down On My Luck’ for me & Papi Beatz and just spoke my truth into song.”
The track does take on a Hiplife feel and fuses Mensa’s love for hip-hop with a style of music his dad’s home country is famous for producing. Listen to it below.
