He learns from the all-knowing "Mr. Ye."
Vic Mensa has a new animated web series. Linking up with WeBuyGold, the Chicago rapper is voicing himself in Mind of Mensa, a classic arcade game-inspired series that puts him in a Karate Kid-like role as he attempts to master Mind, Energy, Nature, Soul, and Agility, an acronym for MENSA. He learns from Mr. Ye, a character who not-so-coincidentally bears a resemblance to Kanye West, but is unfortunately not voiced by the Chicago icon himself.
So far, there are two episodes out, with more to come on a weekly basis. Episode 2 plays off of "Coco Butter Kisses," Vic's beloved collab ith Chance The Rapper. It includes Pacman ghosts rocking Chance "3" hats.
Watch both episodes above.
In other Vic news, the rapper recently spoke out against Trump's plan to arm teachers. “Giving guns to teachers is absolutely asinine. It’s so backwards, it’s like anyone saying that clearly never been to a public school, and it’s all just a diversion from big money lobbyist with the NRA,” he said. "Point blank you gotta ban AR-15’s point blank. You don't need an AR-15 to kill a deer, you don’t." Watch his conversation with TMZ here.
