Newly signed to Roc Nation, Vic Mensa stops by Power 106 LA’s to catch up with Justin Credible to talk about JAY Z’s announcement yesterday and life leading up to it. “To sit down and be able to just press play for Hov is blessing,” Vic says about his new boss, having been a long time fan of his work as well his business.

He discusses being fresh of the Coachella stage and his favorite performances, new Chicago and Roc-A-Fella tattoos, early memories of music, living in Obama’s hood and his long standing friendship with Chance The Rapper. The 22-year old, Chicgao kid also speaks on the origins the Kanye collabs, U Mad and The Wolves and what it’s like working with Ye. Check the video above.
