Rapper Vic Mensa makes quite the statement in his latest video.
Unleashed moments ago, the visual for ‘3 Years Sober’ sees the outspoken star team with 93PUNX and Travis Barker for a clip few are likely to forget.
Explaining its rationale, Vic says:
“The ‘3 Years Sober’ video is a statement about identity. I put on a confederate flag dress to be able to laugh at a symbol of hate, and played tug of war with Mike Pence over birth control. I had my face written on to get ahead of everything I know people will say about me and had a diner full of BBQ Becky’s call the police on me for using the women’s bathroom. I know some in hip hop culture will see this and say ‘Vic’s gay’ (which I’m not), whereas if I was white they’d just say ‘he’s a rockstar.’ 93PUNX is about being yourself, f*ck what people think.”
Watch after the jump…
Did Vic get his message across?
