Over the last few years, young Chicago MC Vic Mensa has gained serious traction in the industry by tip-toeing a line that blurs hip-hop with dance, similar to GoldLink. But if you’ve ever wondered what Mensa sounds like over Chiraq drill music, then his recent feature on Young Chop’s “Around My Way” answers your questions.

The eerie, booming track packs some serious punch and allows Young Chop to step from outside of the production booth to directly behind the mic, while Mensa sets the tone with a hard-edged hook.
