Vic Mensa Shows Just How Much He Cares About the Homeless Crisis in His Hometown of Chicago
Vic Mensa shows just how much he cares about the homeless crisis in his hometown of Chicago by helping to raise money and awareness while spending the night sleeping just like most homeless do in the Windy City.
On Tuesday night February 28, 2023, Vic slept in a tent under the city’s viaduct with a group of individuals.
The 29-year-old came out to support the event organizer, Englewood Barbie, who is looking to raise $1million to build a shelter for the unhoused. According to TMZ, she’s still a little far from her goal with about $126,000 raised.
“We outside tonight in Chicago sleeping underneath the viaduct raising money to help my homegirl Englewood Barbie build her own shelter to provide for the unhoused of Chicago”, Mensa told TMZ.
“It’s cold as fuck but it’s wild to think that people have to live outside every night. In the wintertime, people freeze to death so we’re taking this moment to honor that experience and do our part to work to make the city a better place.”
Valentino Vic then made a parody of MTV Cribs and showed off his rough sleeping conditions and the limited supplies he’d be using to keep warm throughout the cold night inside his tent.
Vic Mensa Cares
Vic Mensa is making giving to the less fortunate a staple as he was recently in Ghana bringing clean water to over 200,000 residents as he performed at the free Black Star Line Festival on the first weekend in January.
Vic Mensa spoke with TMZ Hip Hop expressing how he grew emotional when he saw the living conditions in Accra, Ghana which included contaminated water, and partnered up with his father, who is Ghanian, to bring clean water to three villages.
“We’re building three boreholes in different communities in Ghana to provide clean drinking water; the first being the Asokore Zongo in Koforidua where my family lives, which is already built,” Mensa said.
He continued: “The other locations are a nearby community called Effiduase and then our ancestral village in the Volta Region, Amedzofe. Most people in communities like this in Ghana experience constant waterborne diseases.”
