Vic Mensa and producer Michael Uzowuru have developed a special musical chemistry in the short amount of time they’ve known one another. Each has a love of music of all genres and defies labeling with respect to his craft. Thus, to no surprise, the music they’ve made together is often without convention, drawing on elements of multiple styles. Their song “Waves,” for example melded bits of Jazz, Rock and Soul, with Vic delivering a plaintive mix of both rapping and singing. Today, they release the first song they ever recorded together, simply titled “April 13th,” a nod to the day they first met and recorded together. The song is again a melange of sounds that would be a harbinger of what was to come from the two diverse artists. It also features a jazzy trumpet contribution from Donnie Trumpet of Chance the Rapper’s Social Experiment. Check it out.
