Rapper Vic Mensa, 24, organized a show at Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY on September 30, which was a hurricane benefit show. The capacity of the venue is only for 575 people so it was a small concert which is not very typical of the rapper, reported The Hollywood Life.
TIDAL members attended the show and had to bring supplies such as school supplies, toiletries, diapers etc in order to help and support the hurricane victims. The rapper in a press conference said that "MusiCares initiative is doing amazing things on behalf of the music community so it's a perfect match."
Vic came out with his debut album "The Autobiography" this July, and his video "Rollin' Like A Stoner" came out on Sept. 29. The video for the track was directed by the rapper himself and it shows the various aspects of a drug inflicted lifestyle and pointing out its hazards. The video shows how the life of a person taking drugs turn around and it's just a reckless escapism. Mensa has said that the video and the track were extremely personal to him.
