Vic Mensa Donates $10K Worth of Gas And Weed in Chicago
Vic Mensa has been reported to donate $10K worth of worth of gas and weed at a BP station in his old Southside neighborhood over the Labor Day weekend.
The rapper’s philanthropic move in a bid to promote his new cannabis business, 93 Boyz, was a timely and well-appreciated one by residents of Chicago. A woman was reported to weep as she described her hopeless case. According to her, she had only $5 left on her and had no idea how she was going to get gas to take her granddaughter to work.
“I don’t know how I’ma get no gas to take you to work. We have $5 on the car then you all came. Ain’t nothing but God and blessings. I just want to say thank you, that’s all, okay,” she said as she wept.
“God bless you. We appreciate you. 93 Boyz got you,” responded.
According to TMZ, the 29-year-old rapper helped fuel roughly 200 vehicles.
The company, 93 Boyz is Chicago’s first black-owned cannabis business launched over the summer. According to the company’s official website, “The brand was founded by Chicago-born musician and activist Vic Mensa with a vision of lifting up the neighborhoods around him while lifting spirits across the state. That vision- paired with the heaviest, headiest gas available anywhere- is what fuels 93 Boyz today.”
After the launch in August, Mensa told The Triibe, a local publication in Chicago: “I feel phenomenal to be able to be the first Black-owned cannabis brand operating in the state of Illinois.” He continued, “At the same time, I recognize that excitement comes with much more work to do culturally. I feel the excitement.”
