Vic Mensa is one of the biggest hopes in rap for 2014. His track, Down On My Luck, found a masterful balance between effortless flow and commercial likeability and has slowly crept its way onto Australian radio. His latest track, Major Payne, has been made available for free download today and will be featured on his Street Lights EP. Major Payne takes a harder, hip-hop line than Down on my Luck but his personality is still undeniable. He also continues to take slight cues from electronic music with crescendoing beats and twinkling synths. MC Hammer is also sampled for a perfect millisecond.
