Whether he is involved with his own musical creations or other artist’s music like Kanye West with his placement on The Life of Pablo with the track ‘Wolves’, Vic is making sure to stay afloat. We heard a loose drop earlier in the year from Mensa entitled ‘Danger’ that was released to the masses due to the hype that it built when he previewed it at the Madison Square Garden arena during Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3. With the track giving an overall hype and grimy feel to it, it only added to the curiosity on what Vic was going to come with next.
