Vic Mensa Tour
Chicago-based rapper Vic Mensa was an underground sensation before stepping into the spotlight in 2013, appearing on Chance the Rapper's high-profile mixtape Acid Rap. His collaboration with Chance was followed by the release of his own music shortly thereafter, characterized by a bright lyrical style influenced by the more positive side of '90s hip-hop with notes of rock and pop. Thanks to a unique style and frequent collaborations with Chance, Mensa quickly made a name for himself, capturing audiences' attention. His debut single "Down on My Luck" dropped in June 2014, followed by his debut solo album The Autobiography in 2017. Mensa is a founder of the hip-hop collective Savemoney, as well as the SavemoneySavelife foundation which combats American racism and funds programs in Chicago centered around health and the arts.
