“No Chill,” the new song from Vic Mensa, picks up right where 2015’s “U Mad” left off. Over tight snares and rapid fire hi hats, a horn section booms ominously across the track. Skrillex’s crisp production on the dark beat is reminiscent of his recent work on The Game’s “El Chapo,” The producer, best known for helping to popularize dubstep, seems set on making his mark on the rap game.
As for Vic, his verses live up to the song title. “Practice? What the fuck is practice??” demands the Chicago MC throughout. His flows are as aggressive as the beat, and twice as cocky. Is Vic ready to be the next big thing out of Chi Town? “I was born ready” he reminds us, several times.
