Vic Mensa has dramatically changed his entire aesthetic since dropping his debut mixtape Innanetape in 2013 at age 19. Innanetape received a 98% reader rating on HNHH. It was a fantastic mixtape. Why the change? Mensa went from the carefree teenager flirting with girls by spraying them with orange soda-filled super-soakers to the Kanye protege with a "Southside" neck tattoo who addresses social injustice at length in his music.

In short, Mensa's ambition knows no bounds. His upcoming debut Traffic will undoubtedly be one of the most discussed and thought-provoking albums of the year. Click through the gallery to trace his brief, expansive, impressive history.
