Video: Vic Mensa And Damon Albarn Team Up Onstage To Cover Gorillaz

Vic Mensa may have started out in Kids These Days but he's certainly graduated to the big time. At last weekend's Governor's Ball concert in New York, he came out onstage with living legend and once (and future) Blur frontman Damon Albarn to duet on Gorrillaz's "Clint Eastwood." Unfortunately only the first half of the song is up online, but it does a lovely job showcasing Mensa taking a verse and turning it into something uniquely his own, no mean feat with a song like this.

It also happened to be Mensa's 21st birthday, and we can think of no cooler way to usher in legally becoming an "adult."
