The single, which follows his recent I TAPE, features BJ the Chicago Kid and Papi Beatz.

Today is the first day of fall, but we might as well pour one out for the last days of summer. “The Taste,” the latest single from Vic Mensa which features BJ the Chicago Kid and Papi Beatz, will have you lusting for warm summer breezes and romantic dates at Navy Pier. The single follows Mensa’s recent I TAPE project, which featured collaborations with Chance the Rapper and Wyclef Jean.

The video for “The Taste” finds Mensa and a date indulging in their love. They walk around Chicago and ride around on a carousel. Mensa shouts out various city checkpoints, comparing his love for his date to that he possesses for his hometown. “And when we ride Lake Shore I feel like we on LSD,” he sings sweetly at one point.
