Vic Mensa – “Codeine Crazy (Icarus Story)”

blame it on Meka July 22, 2015

The 2015 Pitchfork Music Festival was a decidedly Chicago affair, with Chance The Rapper clsoing out the festival with a much talked about performance on its final night. His SAVEMONEY brother-in-arms, Vic Mensa, was also on hand to bring the ruckus as well, performing a typically high-energy set that had fans screaming his raps back at him word-for-word.

It was at this show where he performed what many thought was his remix of Future‘s “Codeine Crazy.” Instead, it’s an alternative take on the song: a rock-tinged number that features Vic putting the raps to the left to flex his singing chops. He’s now released the song, following his Skrillex and Jahlil Beats-produced “No Chill,” for your enjoyment below.
