Vic Mensa - "Down On My Luck" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Vic Mensa proves he's not just another Chi-town MC with the up-trot house-tinged rocker "Down On My Luck," produced by himself and on-deck Chicago DJ Stefan Ponce. The club--stamped offering features a mid-range crooning Mensa over some glistening synths and four-to-the-floor drum work, taking this one to the dance-floor to do work. Fans of his sunny Neptunes -esque "Lovely Day" will take solace in the high-energy footwork commanding funk of "Down On My Luck." The video follows Mensa through a Groundhog's Day-type loop with the youngin' making his way through various social hazards in a club and learning from his miscues with every wrong turn. Tag along with Vic Mensa in the calamitous visuals for "Down On My Luck" below and get familiar. We've got a hunch you'll be hearing this one all summer long.
