Rhymes & Reasons presents Vic Spencer.

A Chicago MC and self-described “poster dad,” Vic Spencer is the consummate hip-hop head. As a kid growing up in a group home, he once spliced two halves of one song together from separate tape recordings off the radio to make a single, continuous version for himself.

Vic spoke to R&R about the song, “Bloodshed & War,” by Da Youngstas ft. Mobb Deep, as well as “Tonight’s da Night” from Redman and Kane & Abel’s “Black Jesus.”
