Vic Mensa spoke about his new album VICTOR. During his time on the platform Vic Mensa detailed his desire to get sober. “I definitely have a different sense of clarity and a different sense of focus than I’ve ever had before,” Mensa said. “And I think a lot of that came from sobriety for real. And so I’m two years sober, I just passed that milestone about a week ago. Alcohol, and weed, and pills, and all that type of s**t. I started practicing Islam in that same point in time. And above all, I made a decision to cut out all the shit in my life that was not actively serving a purpose, not actively bringing me towards my goals. “And I come to realize that a lot of those things that created issues in my life were just ways of running from something, ways of masking some emotion, or hiding some insecurity, forgetting about it for a few minutes. And facing fear though is what takes you to another level.
