Chicago's wild child Vic Mensa has been walking on the dark side. He's been dabbling in emo music and experimenting with his sound, which has been divisive for his fans. Still, Mensa has never been the type of artist to let the world's depiction of him steer him off his path. With that in mind, Mensa has returned to take control. Hooligans is an 8 song EP that mixes hard-hitting lyricism and emotional introspection.
Mensa grabs G Herbo, G-Eazy, Mr. Hudson, Charlie Wilson, and Ty Dolla $ign for the Hooligans EP. The project expands for a decent length despite its brief playlist. Each track runs for over three minutes, except for the intro which just barely misses the mark. It sounds like Mensa went into the booth with a personal chip on his shoulder, eager to remind fans and critics that he has the Chi on his back.
