Vic Mensa literally fights for equality in politically charged punk video
Vic Mensa is proving his 93PUNX project is anything but a gimmick. Following up on his pointed "Camp America" video, he makes another clear stand on political issues with his video for "3 Years Sober."
Throwing his message into the face of anyone who watches, Mensa turns every verbal weapon in his arsenal on racism, homophobia and women's issues.
Beginning with the rapper-turned-punk in front of a mirror, 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 sounded off on Twitter soon after the video dropped, explaining his own thoughts on what the video means.
The singer also didn't hesitate to address expected negativity before critics had a chance to.
"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
