Vic Mensa Detained by Police, Accused of Stealing After Dropping $4,000 at Barneys
Vic Mensa was doing what rappers do, dropping hella racks in Barneys and such, when he was accused of stealing and detained by the police. He caught some of the experience on Snapchat, and above you can see how it went down.
"I'm tired of dealing with these motherfuckers man," says Vic, pointing the camera to a nearby police officer who was detaining him. "Over here just giving a nigga trouble for all types of stupid shit. We didn't steal shit. I go in Barneys and spend four racks and get accused of stealing."
It's always ironic to see rich rappers getting accused of doing petty shit they don't have to stoop to. Chances are Vic could drop a cop's salary in Barneys right now if he wanted to, but his point seems to be that racism, violent or otherwise, is still racism.
"That's the craziest part about it, I went and bought some ill Saint Laurent boots, some more shit from Barneys, and we get all pulled out the fucking car and get accused of stealing. And on top of that, they don't even know what they think we stole," he says. "You can't be a young black man out here doing anything legal, positive, and you still get treated like a criminal. We don't have to steal shit man, we could buy nicer shit than you buy for your wife for her right now."
Vic's never been one to bite his tongue about the police. On his latest project There's Alot Going On, the song "16 Shots" serves as a rally cry – "Ready for war, we got our boots strapped."
