In Some Trouble
by Vic Mensa (featuring Ty Dolla $ign)

  • This song finds Vic Mensa rapping about a woman with a lover back home. However she is beautiful enough to get into some trouble for.
  • Shawty backing it up, she dancing like she at Follies
    She be sliding, and gliding

    This was the first lyric that Mensa wrote for the song. He explained to Genius: "All day my boy Ugly Eddy had been talking about how he's sliding and gliding and he a lingo king, lingo God. I gotta give him that prop. He always coming with some lingo."
  • Directed by Bobby Hanaford (Neon Hitch's ''I Know You Wannit''), the video chronicles a night gone wrong for Mensa. The clip features cameos from Ty Dolla $ign and comedian Jay Pharoah.
