Listen to Vic Mensa's "Time Is Money" Ft. Rockie Fresh & Beldina

Songs are condiments for lived experience—slather your afternoon in the emotionally charged BBQ sauce of "Time Is Money." Boi-1da's airy keys underscore the lofty ambitions of Chicago upstart Vic Mensa, next up from Chance The Rapper's SAVEMONEY crew. Vic doubles down on pithy quotables—"Make money, but the money you make don't make you"—illustrated by contemplative street reporting from a city marred by school closures and "stray bullets bouncing off light poles." Serve lightly chilled, with a side of Rockie Fresh to taste.
