In the second series of Vic Mensa x TIDAL's coast-to-coast partnership for hurricane relief, Vic is performing a pop-up show in New York City on Saturday Sept. 30 at the Bowery Ballroom. On the heels of his recent album The Autobiography, the Chicago rapper is helping build awareness for the Recording Academy's MusiCares Hurricane Relief fund.
In the first edition of the artist's collab with TIDAL, Mensa performed in Los Angeles where all of the concertgoers were required to bring one item to donate to those effected by the hurricanes. The same rule will be in effect at Mensa's NYC pop-up. “With so many heartbreaking events happening across the world, I’m eager to lend my support to victims of the recent hurricanes and other natural disasters,” Vic said.
In light of recent natural disasters, Mensa commented on how reactions to these atrocities relate to climate change. When speaking with HipHopDX, Mensa stated that "I don't do this music for the money or for the charts. I do this music to wake people up, to inform and to make people ask questions about themselves and the world around them."
If you can't make it to Bowery Ballroom tonight, there will be opportunities to donate to the hurricane relief fund throughout the live stream of Vic's show.
Mensa will also be apart of the third annual Tidal X concert in Brooklyn, which will feature performances by Jay Z, Cardi B, DJ Khaled, and more.
