Vic Mensa And G-Eazy Create Post Apocalyptic Car Race For Reverse Video

Tuesday, 07 August 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Vic Mensa has released a video for his latest single, Reverse, which finds the rapper squaring off against G-Eazy in a post-apocalyptic race.

The track, produced by Marshmello and built around a somnambulistic piano line, was released back in June, serving as the rapper's first new music since his 2017 debut album, 'The Autobiography'. The clip, meanwhile, was directed by Bobby Hanaford and premiered on MTV's Times Square billboard.

G-Eazy appears throughout the video alongside a crew of Mad Max-style outcasts, trash-talking each other while preparing spray-painted cars for the race. 

Other 2018 singles from Mensa include Metaphysical and 10K Problem, while he also guested on Nile Rodgers and Chic’s Till the World Falls and Tom Morello’s We Don’t Need You.

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
