Vic Mensa Goes on a Trippy Ride in ‘Rollin’ Like a Stoner’ Video [WATCH]
Vic Mensa takes viewers on a wild ride in his trippy video for “Rollin’ Like a Stoner." As the title suggests, the visual is a psychedelic trip into his the Chicago rapper’s mind.
In his self-directed video, we see Mensa driving around recklessly on the streets both on a motorcycle and in a car. We get flashbacks of his mother tucking him in as a child and other weird images. The grandmother with the “Southside” tattoo etched around her neck is an eye-opener.
“The ‘Rollin' Like A Stoner’ video is about reckless abandon and escapism," said Mensa in a statement to Merry Jane. "The whole thing was filmed on a stage, as a comment on life as an entertainer. I was watching films like Bye Bye Life and Birdman, and 1920s westerns."
“Rollin’ Like a Stoner” is from Mensa’s latest album, The Autobiography. The “U Mad” rapper will join JAY-Z on his “4:44 Tour” tour next month.
