EARLY PRAISE FOR THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY:

When history ranks 2017 among hip-hop’s wonder yearsVic Mensa’s long-awaited full-length debut will be a big part of the reason whyequal parts confessional and confrontational, gut-wrenching and uplifting. Steeped in a personal story arc that envelopes Mensa’s hometown, it echoes with the pain of a generation.” – NPR

“‘The Autobiographytells stories that are dark and sometimes confusing, fragments about loss, drugs and everyday struggle. But its focus, Mensa’s ability to turn these experiences into a long and complex arc, also suggests a feeling as if he’s sharing a secret that’s been caught inside him. He describes the album as a process of rediscovery.” – ROLLING STONE

Its a deeply sincere album, an album thoughtful and genuinethe album is sharp and layered and complex in some of the same waysMensa really does have stories to tell, and the urgency in the way he tells them helps make The Autobiography into something special.” – STEREOGUM (Album Of The Week)
