Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "On the intense, Pharrell-produced 'Wings' he vocalizes the voices in head that filled him with shame, doubt and suicidal thoughts. Most emotionally rich may be 'Heaven on Earth,' which interpolates Aughts trip-poppers Lamb..." NME (Magazine) - "The album features an all-star cast of guest vocalists....[An] album gelled together by Mensa's emotionally frank lyrics, which reveal a complex persona..." Paste (magazine) - "[A] lyrical, plainspoken hip-hop record that successfully taps into early-2000s alternative as it dissects Mensa's personal struggles and larger social issues." Pitchfork (Website) - "As much as he is a naturally voracious emcee, Mensa is also writerly....'Say I Didn't' is triumphant and expensive, a red carpet for the rest of the record." Clash (Magazine) - "The album's sense of self-reflection reaches its peak on `Wings', in which the Chicago rapper questions his friendships and addresses his addiction. Pharrell's ethereal hook perfectly contrasts the growing ferocity in Vic's delivery,"

Recording information: CRC, Chicago, IL; Eastwood, Hollywood, CA; Labren Studios, Ingelwood, CA; Paramount Studios, Hollywood, CA; Thugz Mansion Home Studio, Chicago, IL; United, Hollywood, CA; Westlake Recording Studios, West Hollywood, CA. Named to XXL's Freshman Class of 2014, signed by Jay-Z's Roc Nation in 2015, and nominated for a Grammy in 2016 (for co-writing Kanye West's "All Day"), Vic Mensa has been on a steady rise since he opened "Family," off fellow Savemoney member Chance the Rapper's 10 Day. Bearing a plainly descriptive title, the Chicago south-sider's debut full-length also follows a couple mixtapes (one with defunct band Kids These Days), as many EPs, a batch of singles, and a profusion of appearances on tracks headlined by a cross-continental, multi-genre crop of artists. Going by this large volume of scattered output delivered with a laser-sight glare, it's conceivable that the biggest challenge Mensa faced in making The Autobiography was corralling his lifetime's worth of experiences and greater number of thoughts. The cover's crumpled scraps could be more than props. Each one of the verses, as transcribed in the booklet, contains some form of penned elaboration or correction within or beside it. Co-executive produced with Jay-Z and No I.D., a duo not averse to concision, The Autobiography is both rangy and controlled. On the mike, Mensa is ceaselessly impassioned, whether cramming syllables between knocking beats or stretching notes of hooks across gleaming synthesizers, recalling an adolescent experience with police brutality or personifying -- humanizing, even -- the individual who murdered his friend. At all times, Mensa projects a rare balanced mix of eagerness and assuredness, even avowing himself as a legend one moment, like the designation is irrefutable, and yet in "Wings" -- a masterful Pharrell Williams production -- illustrating self-doubt, depression, and chemical dependency in lacerating form. Some references to proper nouns come across as either misplaced or forced, and the set could do with fewer strained fairground-rock choruses. These shortcomings are nonetheless too rare and slight to prevent The Autobiography from being a remarkable first album from an artist who can "scream 'Fuck the police'" and shout-out Weezer with equal instinctive command. ~ Andy Kellman

レビュー
  • チャンス・ザ・ラッパー擁するセイヴマネー・クルーの創設者、ヴィック・メンサが満を持してのデビュー・アルバムをロック・ネイションよりリリース。〈自叙伝〉を意味するタイトル通り全編に渡って内省的な色合いが濃く、時にそれはメランコリックな方向に振れすぎるきらいがあるものの、こうしたアルバムのトーンがキッズ・ディース・デイズ時代から続くヴィックのロックな体質と抜群の相性を示しているのも確か。ウィーザーをフィーチャーした"Homewrecker"やソウル・ウィリアムスが参加した"Wings"など、どこまでも〈エモい〉作品集ではある。制作は計9曲を手掛けるノーIDのほか、ファレル・ウィリアムズ、DJダヒ、オンマス・キース、ドリームらが担当している。
