This past Friday, Metro hosted Chicago’s very own Vic Mensa who performed to a sold out crowd. Mensa, a hip-hop recording artist, performed four new songs which will only be released in his upcoming extended play “Streetlights” set to release in July next year.
As part of the hip-hop group SAVE MONEY, Mensa brought out fellow rappers to perform songs with him and after the show, he was kind enough to sign posters and meet with his fans for nearly two hours.
A mere 21-year-old, Vic Mensa caught the attention of Virgin EMI Records and signed with the record label in 2013. Not only is he an emerging artist on the hip-hop scene, but he also has his own clothing line.
