Vic Mensa Wears Confederate Flag Dress In Controversial ‘3 Years Sober’ Video

Published: Thursday 25th Jul 2019 by Sam

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?

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
      I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.

    Desperate for attention!

    • Rashad July 25, 2019

      Yep. Just like your racist, homophobic a%s on these message boards

      • Jasmine July 25, 2019

        Never. I have trolls that impersonate me on here. I am not racist nor do I want attention.

    ITS been done and it’s not innovative

  5. Jasmine The Real Princess July 25, 2019

    Beyoncé sold 949 copies in the UK first week.
    Thought I would share since TGJ of course wouldn’t post about it.

    Flop. 😘

    This is merely a publicity stunt using social issues as a tool for self promotion, attention, and click bait. If he were really serious about addressing any of these issues he couldve done it like Childish Gambino’s This Is America.

    There is a RIGHT way to do this and a DESPERATE way… Vic sadly chose the latter for the shock value of seeing a self identified hetero male wearing a DRESS. Period.

    • Paulo July 25, 2019

      Thank you. His statements could’ve been way more sensitive regarding what q**** black folk go thru but instead it’s all secondary to his egotistical narrative (I am a rockstar). Maybe he meant well but it backfired

    • Billy Resin July 26, 2019

      Yeah I agree,
      Big difference between being subversive or starting a conversation as opposed to using the flag and dress for shock value.
      It’s ok to be a flamboyant, just don’t be out here in dresses having to assure everyone you’re str8. If you have to say you’re straight in the blurb of the video youre wearing a dress in, kinda seems like he isnt that comfortable doing it.
      Young thug wears dresses and no one gives a f*** cos he doesn’t give a f*** what anyone thinks. Which I guess Vic was also going for judging by his banal punk comparisons.
      Rock has been dead for 20 years or so. Straight dudes aren’t trying to co op q**** culture anymore cos of the backlash (besides blood orange) just remember prince was constantly knee deep in p**** and still looking Purdy.
      If you need to explain your art in a blurb you’ve kinda shat the bed IMO.

        Why is q u e e r being censored. SAM?

  7. JustIgnoreMe July 25, 2019

    If he was white wouldn’t people just call him a racist

  8. Jay July 25, 2019

    Ummm

    No shade… but who???

    And while everyone in the US / UK / EU is getting worked up over identity politics (gender, race, class), China is slowly rising up to topple the west and extort whatever resources it can from the carcass. SMH!

    All this while people in the aforementioned countries / regions argue about bathrooms, what’s in between people’s legs, and other trivial nonsense (I’m guilty of this as well). Whelp, can’t say that we were diligent / didn’t deserve to fall off. Yikes.

    A nation of nearly 2billion patriotic, fighting aged, battle-ready individuals who despise everything the US and similar countries stand for (and what those countries did to them) are gearing up for war and people on the opposing side are worrying about this trivial sh** 😩
