Vic Mensa donates $10k to gas and pre-rolled joints for Chicago residents

Vic Mensa delivered more than $10,000 worth of gas to residents of his hometown of Southside Chicago earlier this month while promoting his new cannabis company 93 Boyz. Mensa also handed out pre-rolled joints at the local BP gas station.

Mensa was able to reach about 200 vehicles at the gas station. At the event, a woman explained that she only had $5 in her pocket and was worried about getting her granddaughter to work.

Mensa launched 93 Boyz earlier this year, billed as Black’s first cannabis company in the Windy City. Speaking to Block Club Chicago last month, the rapper described the company as a “premium gas company.”

“We’re a premium gas company,” he said. “We’ve got our finger on the pulse when it comes to genetics. There’s no taste in the Illinois market. There’s no cool, streetwear-related brands like in Los Angeles and other markets. There’s nothing sick here. It was our intention to bring in the really sick cannabis.”

Marijuana was legalized in Illinois in January 2020.

On the company’s website, a statement reveals that Mensa founded the brand with a “vision to brighten up the neighborhoods around him while lifting the spirits in the state.”
