    Here’s Why Vic Mensa is Our “Man of The Summer”

    Vic Mensa responded positively to the recent news of Police putting sneaker bait trucks in low-income neighborhoods. He did a back to school giveaway of sneakers to those same communities Police targeted.

    This past Sunday, the musician’s foundation Save Money Save Life threw an “anti-bait truck” giveaway, handing out boat-loads of shoes to those of the Englewood community in Chicago.

    People across the U.S. have since then praised the efforts of Vic Mensa for demonstrating positive reinforcement of an ill-intended ploy to criminalize those in urban communities over basic necessities.

    “To see the police escort a bait truck full of shoes through a low-income neighborhood where people can’t afford basic necessities, it seemed very representative of how ill-equipped they are to deal with the city’s issues,” Mensa said in an interview with the New York Times.

    In my opinion, these are the efforts that need to be nationally publicized in every blog, website or feed. It’s three days after the event and I’m just finding out about this. What’s wrong with that picture? It’s good to know that there are still people in the world with a heart big enough to fill the needs of others freely.

    Hip Hop has been a voice for the streets but hasn’t been a factor in helping them in times like these. Mainly due to the widespread mainstream message of violence, materialism and drug solicitation. Vic Mensa definitely deserves to be crowned in his actions even if this article is the only one to do so.
