Vic Mensa is ending the year on a high note. Now, the Chicago rapper unleashes the official music video for “Dark Things,” which touches on his own struggle with mental health, relapses and all. In addition, he announces his new Hooligans EP, slated to be released on December 14th on Roc Nation/Capitol Records.
Directed by Bobby Hannaford, the 3-minute clip is both elaborate and haunting, bringing the heartfelt record to life in true Vic Mensa fashion. He raps, “Everyone around me wants something from me. Pretty girls want the truth, but the truth is ugly. She don’t even like me, she just wants to f*ck me.”
Fans can look forward to features from Ty Dolla $ign, G-Eazy, Charlie Wilson, and more on the forthcoming EP. For now, get inside Vic’s head and watch the visual above!
