Dammit! In what I’m sure comes as a shock to many of us, Vic Mensa just revealed to XXL that the (incredibly talented) Chicago collective Kids These Days has official broken up.
It’s never going to be an “I hate you” type of situation. For the most part it’s a happy settlement. There were certain moves made by some people that weren’t all the way stand-up moves, but at the end of the day there isn’t really any bad blood. It’s not like I can’t be in the room with everybody in the band, and I wish everybody the best. But the band breaking up wasn’t my ultimatum, I didn’t bring that to the table, but once it was brought to the table it kind of opened up a world I’d already been living in in my own head for a while. I just see it as a great opportunity. Kids These Days was great and it was a lot of fun, but now I want to do something different. And I produce now, too.
Check the full interview here; which includes more talk of the break up, Vic’s plans for his solo career (INNANETAPE coming soon), a premiere of his new music video (which you can check here) and more.
