Vic Mensa, the 22-year-old Roc Nation signee from Chicago, is overdue for his debut album, but at least he's giving out consolation prizes. Today's is "Married to the King," a Soundcloud freestyle over a relentless beat by Deputy.

Choice bars from a man who's got as many smooth, emotive singer-y singer notes in his arsenal as rhymes:

N---as don't need to see me go cuckoo
10 seconds from a mental breakdown, I'm outta state now
Old Country Buffet, I got so much on my plate now
I just left L.A., I'm flyin' right back to L.A. now

Get into it:

"Married to the King" is the latest addition to Mensa's two-years-deep Soundcloud catalog, one that's got Chance the Rapper featured more than once. Back in July, it looked like Mensa was starting a beef with Travi$ Scott—also a mentee to Vic's "U Mad" partner Kanye West—with a similarly regally titled freestyle, "Heir to the Throne."
