Vic Mensa – “Codeine Crazy (Icarus Story)” (Future Cover)

As Rap-Up points out, the young Chicago rapper Vic Mensa debuted his own version of Future’s “Codeine Crazy,” a track from last year’s Monster mixtape, at this past weekend’s Pitchfork Music Festival. I didn’t see him do it, since he was on at the same time as Sleater-Kinney, but the studio version of his track is now online. Mensa tweaks the song significantly, singing it over a spare guitar instead of a seasick trap lurch, but the general feeling of floating into oblivion is the same. Check out the Mensa version, titled “Codeine Crazy (Icarus Story),” below.

Mensa’s album Traffic is coming later this year on Roc Nation.
