JAY-Z is universally regarded as one of the greatest rappers ever, so when he gives you props, you know you’re doing something right. Vic Mensa must be killing it then, because Hov lofted some hefty praise in Los Angeles last night (July 13) during the Chicago rapper’s album listening party for The Autobiography.
Making an appearance at a listening party for his album The Autobiography, Jay offered short but very sweet praise of his Roc Nation signee. “Vic is a very special talent,” he said. “He can do everything – sing well, rap well. He even engineers himself sometimes. He’s an incredible artist, like a once in a lifetime artist.” Beyoncé was also on hand at the event, making her first real public appearance since giving birth to twins.
Mensa’s The Autobiography includes guest appearances by Pusha T, Pharrell, Saul Williams, The-Dream, Ty Dolla $ign, Syd, Chief Keef, Joey Purp, and Weezer. It’s due July 28th.
