Vic Mensa decided to pay kindness forward by donating $10,000 worth of gas to the residents of his hometown. The rapper, known for singles like “U Mad” and “Orange Soda,” did this to promote his cannabis business. He also passed some pre-rolled joints to residents at the BP gas station. Approximately 200 vehicles took advantage of this special opportunity. One lady even considered this a blessing seeing as if she only had $5 in her pocket.
Mensa started his business, 93 Boyz, last year. The rapper describes it as a “premium gas company.”
He continues, “We’ve got our finger on the pulse as far as genetics go. There’s no flavor in the Illinois market. There’s no cool, like streetwear-akin brands like there are in Los Angeles and other markets. There’s nothing ill over here. Our intention was to bring in the really ill cannabis.”
As per 93 Boyz’s website, “Mensa founded the brand with a vision of lifting up the neighborhoods around him while lifting spirits across the state.”
