Vic Mensa – Down On My Luck [Single]


If you told me back in 2013 that one of the catchiest house songs of the new year would be by Vic Mensa a.k.a. Discount Chance the Rapper, I would have laughed, but here we are. The choruses are catchy, the keyboard hook is bright, the rhythmic propulsion punctuated by the female vocal sample is extremely danceable, and the first half of the sole verse is a pocket of beauty (“She loves to dream, living in and off and out her mind / In space and time, she takes a line & lies her life / Away you might just say she stays to go nowhere”), so why is no one talking about this?

“Fuck that, get down!”
