Vic Mensa Says “Post-Racial Society” Is A Lie, Details Traffic Sound (Video)
While performing recently in Canada, Chicago, Illinois’ Vic Mensa swung through Montreality. During the signature interview chronicling everything from video games to academic life, fetishes to romantic gestures, Vic opens up about his Traffic album. Around the 3:40 mark, the Save Money star declares that his full-length will be, in part, an extension of his Kids These Days approach. Calling the work “big” and “anthemic,” Mensa states that he’s out to blend Hip-Hop, Rock & Roll, and Funk.
While spending his first Rap check on a bunch of Bathing Ape gear and three pairs of heels for his lady is a revealing admission, at around 7:15 Vic states that he feels the biggest lie in the world is one of racial equality, especially in Chi-town. From a genre-fusing band that combined a number of races, Vic lambasts politicians for feeling we’ve reached a “post-racial society,” as Vic says the inequalities are all around us…
