MY BAD ITS MONDAY- THE DAY TO PULL UP ON I.C.E. & ROCK OUT

A post shared by 💔 (@vicmensa) on

Mensa has been outspoken about his dislike of the agency in the past. The first song and video he dropped with 93PUNX was “Camp America” where he comments on the current situation involving immigrant children being held in U.S. custody. It features Mensa in ICE gear and showing white children in cages. It depicts the “family detention” centers being used by the U.S. These centers are filled with thousands of children who were separated from their families at the border.

You can see that below. 

93PUNX just dropped their first full-length self-titled LP featuring artists such as Good Charlotte, blink 182 drummer Travis Barker, Tom Morello and more. Barker also executive produced it. 

Prior to the full album dropping, Vic Mensa released the video for “3 Years Sober” where he turns every verbal weapon in his arsenal on racism, homophobia and women’s’ issues. The video begins with the rapper-turned-punk in front of a mirror. There, Mensa dresses in drag complete with a frock brandishing the Confederate flag.

Between fighting a Mike Pence lookalike over birth control, getting slurs marked across his face and being arrested thanks to a gang of BBQ Becky lookalikes, he holds nothing back in his clear shot at American social issues.

Mensa also released two epic live performance videos for each track today, which you can view below.
