Vic Mensa is finally ready to share his long-awaited debut The Autobiography.
A little over a month after dropping The Manuscript, the Chicago MC proves it was only a warm-up for his highly-anticipated album, which is due July 28.
Some fans won’t have to wait that long to hear the LP. In fact, supporters who take photos at select bookstores will get a chance to preview the album this weekend.
Last year, Mensa spoke with Rap-Up about the forthcoming debut and its personal nature. “Lyrically, the records that I have for my album take after subject matter and delivery of the song ‘There’s Alot Going On’ a lot,” he said. “There’s a lot of really personal stories and social context within them but it’s more about me. It’s really poignantly personal, very vulnerable, and real. It’s all real content.”
At the time, he also said that he had some unexpected collaborators on board for the project. “Papi Beatz on production always,” he said. “I’ve got a record with The-Dream that’s crazy. Rivers Cuomo from Weezer. It’s off-the-wall and unexpected collabs. There’s Mike Dean production. Me production. A lot of me production.”
