Vic Mensa has unveiled the track list for his forthcoming The Autobiography as Told by Vic Mensa album. The rapper has enlisted a bevy of guests on the LP, including Pharrell, Weezer, Pusha T, The-Dream and Ty Dolla $ign.
The Chicago MC has been teasing the album this week, offering to preview the LP for fans who showed up at certain bookstores in his hometown and in New York and he also hid the track list and album cover inside books at one establishment.
"I feel like we're in a point in time on this earth when honesty is paramount. Honesty is key. And there's so little honesty and so little to believe in, so making this album my criterion was that I say things that are honest and that I believe in wholeheartedly," he told Rolling Stone of the new record, which he has been working on for a year. "Does this song speak specifically to a key pillar of my life or my experiences? If the answer was 'yes' then it's on the album. … There's reality in everything."
Executive produced by No I.D., The Autobiography will be available on July 28th via Roc Nation/Capitol and follows the June release of The Manuscript, his small collection of songs he dubbed a "capsule" that served an introduction to The Autobiography. The new set includes his previously released song "OMG" featuring Pusha T.
