It was recently reported that Vic Mensa worked on new material with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo and TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek for his upcoming debut album, Traffic. That’s still forthcoming, but before that, it looks like Mensa is preparing to drop a different new project, titled There’s A Lot Going On, based on the photo he shared on Instagram today.
The project has a rumored release date of June 3, though no official release timeline has been announced as of yet. Mensa certainly implied that something new was coming soon in another Instagram post from a few days ago, which appears to show him writing tracklists for an album and a mixtape on a whiteboard, with the caption, “mark your calendar. #savemoneysummer.”
Mensa previously said of his upcoming album, “It’s my perspective on everything going on around me, internally and externally. This overcoming of my struggles with my personal struggles and my interpersonal struggles with addiction and with my relationship, and with – I wouldn’t say politics, I don’t give a fuck about politics – but with the real world, with the streets.”
