Speaking of Vic Mensa and Kids These Days, it was just announced that the experimental hip-hop band is calling it quits. This comes to a shock to many, as the Chicago group was just gaining major traction after their recently released 'Traphouse Rock' mixtape. Below Vic spoke to XXL about the breakup.  "But alas, just as sure as time goes on and musical fads change, some good things must eventually come to an end. And so today, Kids These Days have announced that they will no longer function as a band, which is sad news to the group’s followers who have watched them as they’ve made appearances at major festivals like South By and Lollapalooza, and major TV shows like Conan. The news does come with a silver lining, though, in that the Kids’ lead singer/rapper Vic Mensa – who was recently featured on standout track “Cocoa Butter Kisses” from Chance The Rapper’s Acid Rap mixtape – has announced his solo career." via
