Vic Mensa Covering ‘Seven Nation Army’ Is Proof That Genre Boundaries Are Over

Even if you have Jack White fatigue, this crossover cover rules.

At Lollapalooza last weekend, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa transported everyone back to that simpler, innocent time by covering “Seven Nation Army” with all the intensity of the original.

Remember back before everyone had Jack White fatigue and he was just half of a cool new band called The White Stripes? Nobody knew much about them except they had a female drummer and a song called “Seven Nation Army” that was so cool it was practically the second coming of a spiritual leader. Somehow, Mensa channeled that coolness while updating the track with a little EDM and a little hip-hop posturing.
