Vic Mensa reworks Fabolous’ “Breathe” for new freestyle

He heads back to his hometown of Chicago in the accompanying video.

Vic Mensa has returned with a new freestyle called “Breathe.”

The song is a rework of Fabolous’ 2004 hit of the same name. On the track, the Chicago rapper spits rapid-fire bars over Just Blaze’s iconic production, while making references to celebrities like Ice Cube, Dave Chappelle and more.

“A live wire, two charges for firearms / I’m my whole top 5, n***a pardon my Dylon / Since Dave said he don’t own the rights to Chappelle’s Show / Fuck, this bitch still wanna Netflix and chill though,” he spits. Meanwhile, the accompanying video, directed by Troy From Chicago, features Mensa performing the track around his hometown.


Back in August, Mensa shared his short film Machiavelli, featuring songs from his V Tape EP. He previously teamed up with Keyon Christ on the track “Summer’s Over.”
