Vic Mensa continues to make moves within and beyond the entertainment industry. After touring the country last year as the opening act for Jay-Z’s 4:44 tour, Vic Mensa expanded his platform by continuing to being involved with the development of his Chicago community and beyond. Vic Mensa has been a staunch advocate for nationwide gun reform. Mensa was in attendance at the March for Our Lives this Spring and performed an original song titled, “We Could Be Free“. Following his performance, Mensa told XXL, “The strength, bravery and courage that these high schools kids from everywhere—from Parkland, from Chicago—exhibited, it was really inspiring, and it gives a real honest, human face to what people wanna view as a political issue, when it’s really just a human thing.”
This week, Mensa continued to make moves following the release of his latest album, The Autobiography, by inking a major deal with the United Talent Agency. By signing with UTA, Mensa joins the likes of Jeremih, Pusha T, A Boogie with the Hoodie and a lot of your favorite artists. With that being said, the core of Mensa’s management will remain intact. Mensa will continue to work with Scooter Braun, Dave Appleton and Cody Kazarian. UTA will provide additional support as Mensa looks to further his career success.
