Injury Reserve Releases Desolate Single, “Keep On Slippin’,” With Vic Mensa

Phoenix trio Injury Reserve saw their impressive mixtape Live From The Dentist Office drop last summer. Despite the project being fire, the mixtape was only mentioned over a few platforms like The Needle Drop and Reddit and didn’t end up popping on blog circuits like it should’ve. From the sounds of things, Floss is definitely going to change that.

Injury Reserve, compiled of rappers Ritchie With A T and Groggs, alongside producer Parker Corey, will see the release of their album Floss this Thursday. We’ve already had a taste of the record with the amped-up anthems “OH SHIT!!!” and “All This Money,” but today the group slowed it down some with the release of “Keep On Slippin’,” featuring Vic Mensa. The song pumps the brakes with the steady stream of hype singles Injury Reserve has been releasing in favor of a deep, thoughtful song on depression.

Corey Parker created an atmosphere of introspective space for Groggs, Ritchie With A T and Vic Mensa to connect. Here, a vulnerable Groggs raps on the hardships of being a father and his self-doubt concerning family issues. After an auto-tuned bridge by Ritchie With A T, Vic Mensa drops a few bars on the issues within his own brain and his relationship issues. It’s a change of pace for Injury Reserve, as it shows a striking display of emotions from the usual party favorite Phoenix crew.
