Vic Mensa has shared a new video for his single “Victory,” the track is off his latest offering I Tape. He delivers a steady flow over the SG & Just Blaze-produced track, while the visual takes us on a ride with scavenger hunt winners who recovered five exclusive I Tapes hidden throughout the city of Chicago. “Victory is a return to form for me, says Mensa. “Just pure lyricism and a foolish sample beat. The video was filmed in Chicago with a fleet of sport bikes in a lamon. We spent the whole day running from police.”
The seven-song release, from the Chicago rapper, actor, and activist focuses on injustices, anguish, trauma and the overall Black struggle, topics that Vic doesn’t shy away from. He showcases his adept lyricism and skillset while pushing a bigger message.
Mensa is hard at work in the booth and out – spreading awareness of the unjust incarceration of Julius Jones, hosting a ‘Sleep Out Chicago’ event to raise money for the city’s homeless youth, plus initiatives he’s spearheaded through his nonprofit SAVEMONEYSAVELIFE, to landing an acting role on Showtime’s The Chi and more.
