Vic Mensa is gearing up to release two new projects the first of which will be released on December 14th is titled "Hooligans", the second project is supposed to be titled "93 Punks". The idea behind dropping two of the projects coincides with the clothing line he is set to drop as well as a full tour to support both projects called "The Hooligans vs The Punks”. The clothing line is set to drop with the second album. Talking to Angie Martinez Mensa teased that he has records with Ty Dolla $ign as well as G Herbo on the project.
The Chicago rapper stirred up quite the controversy due to his BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher containing a XXXTentacion diss. Speaking on the diss as well as it airing in front of the late rappers mother he said: "My intent was never to harm a grieving mother, especially because weeks before all you heard was a headline, so they make it sound like I've must of done the wildest, crazy, disrespectful thing ever, when I was just trying to keep it honest". He went on to add that the point he was trying to make was completely missed by the general audience "The point that got missed wasn’t just about one person I was talking about the culture in hip-hop that we as men are regressive in our thought processes about women."
Following up Angie then asked if it's even worth putting that energy out if that is what you get back (referring to the online backlash). His response to this was, "Nah all that’s not worth it, some I've been really learning I had a convo with NO id and Vince Staples and they told me man you still be trying to be you outside like you are where you came from like you in Chicago, you still addressing it as if niggas going to have to see you, I'm not where I came from I'm not in Chicago anymore, situations don’t really happen the same way, this is internet life".
