Scooter Braun Is Now Managing Vic Mensa
After joining Lil Dicky's management team in July, Scooter Braun has added another up-and-coming rapper to his roster by signing on to help manage Vic Mensa. "It's official," Braun wrote on Instagram Wednesday (Aug. 17). "Welcome to the family @vicmensa. This guy is very special and this album is important."
Braun as well tags @rocnation so Mensa remains signed to Jay Z's label, with the talent manager stepping in to handle additional business, which, based on a recent Mensa tweet includes touring Europe with Justin Bieber. Braun has long managed Bieber, discovering the young singer on YouTube and acting as a mentor throughout his career. Bieber has been touring the country with Post Malone in support of his album Purpose and so that Mensa will be joining his as he takes things overseas signals a continued effort to provide a platform for emerging rap acts.
Tour dates are included below with things kicking off in Iceland in September. As for the album that Braun calls very important, Mensa recently said that his tentative title of Traffic has been scrapped. "I made an album and then I didn’t feel like it was the right representation. So I started making a new album,” Mesna said. “That’s where the songs from There’s Alot Going On came out of. I would say it’s about 75% done.”
