Due out through Roc Nation/Capitol, the collection boasts eight tracks, including lead single “Dark Things”. Also featured are collaborations with G-Eazy, Jesse Rutherford of The Neighbourhood, JAY-Z and Kanye West associate Mr Hudson, G Herbo (fka Lil Herb), and Charlie Wilson. Hooligans also has a joint track with Ty Dolla $ign called “In Some Trouble, which he’d previously alluded to in an interview with Consequence of Sound.
The Chicago rapper commented on the Hooligans title in a statement. “Growing up we referred to ourselves as the Hyde Park Hooligans,” he said, “so with the EP I wanted to encapsulate energies that represented that experience as well as what’s going on in my life now, for better or for worse.”

Today’s new EP follows Mensa’s 2017 full-length debut, The Autobiography. Mensa was recently wrapped up in a bit of controversy over his BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher, which saw him call out late rapper XXXTentacion.
