The song touches on his own ongoing struggles with mental health and his rocky road to recovery.
From Vic Mensa:
“Growing up we referred to ourselves as the Hyde Park Hooligans, 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.” –
In addition, Vic has been working closely with his SaveMoneySaveLife foundation to establish programs to uplift marginalized communities in his hometown of Chicago. Today in Chicago, Vic will be doing a drive to collect feminine products that will be distributed to various local domestic violence centers in Chicago in collaboration with R&B Yoga. Also, his ‘Street Medics’ program will begin teaching one class every week at various local high-risk high schools from now until the end of the year. The ‘Street Medics’ program trains “civilians as trauma and mental health first responders within neighborhoods of Chicago that suffer from the highest rates of violence.” For more info visit: https://www.savemoneysavelife.
