Vic Mensa Speaks On New Kaytranada Collabo “Drive Me Crazy”



“Me and Kaytranada linked up through our friend Tunji, who knew we were two of the hottest young niggas doing it; especially in a future sound space. We met at No Excuses studio in LA where I recorded some 40 bar verse on one of his beats I never used, and just kept in contact.”

“He sent me a few beats and ‘Drive Me Crazy’ was one of them. One day I was in Chicago at this party where the bouncer found and took all my weed, so I left and as I was driving home (still baked) I started talking out loud to myself and kind of wondering about where I was in life. I got home and wrote the whole record pretty quick, it was just like a transparent statement about my life in the moment.”

“‘Drive Me Crazy’ is ill because it uses the bounce of dance sounds and minimalist synths to create what’s still a really aggressive and also personal rap record. It’s just new. And that’s what we’re trying to do, bring completely new sonics and vibes into popular music and culture.” – Vic Mensa

“Drive Me Crazy” is available now on iTunes.
