Following his performance at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival, Roc Nation rapper Vic Mensa drops a dope version of Future’s Monster smash “Codeine Crazy.”

Vic’s rework of the song is a little hip-hop, a little rock and roll, a splash of alternative, and a lot of t’ing up. We, without a doubt, love it.

In between hitting festival stages, Vic Mensa’s embarking on his “Traffic Part 1″ tour. He’s currently readying his major label debut Traffic, which is due out later on this year.

Take a listen to his alternative remix below.
