Vic Mensa’s new “capsule” The Manuscript dropped last week and its standout track is the Pharrell-produced “OMG.” Both Skateboard P and Pusha T are featured on the track; P holds down the chorus while Pusha drops a jaw-dropping last verse. The song came together the second time Mensa and Pharrell hit the studio together.
“I was a skateboarder as a kid before I was ever into hip-hop,” Mensa tells Genius.
“Pharrell really opened up the doors for me to feel like that was cool, because on the Southside of Chicago there’s not a lot of skateboarders. Before people saw Pharrell skating and people saw Lupe skating, you didn’t have hip-hop, black examples of skateboarders. Fast forward however many years and now I’m jumping out of the Bentley with the dirty Vans.”
Mensa sat down with Genius for the latest episode of Verified, breaking down his hit. Watch him go line-for-line with “OMG” in the HERE.
