Since joining JAY-Z for his 4:44 Tour last year, Vic Mensa's stock has been on the rise. Due to his rapid ascent in hip-hop, Mensa has inked a new deal with UTA and will be represented by them in all areas. In addition to his move with UTA, Scooter Braun will be managing him, as well.
After previously serving as support for artists such as Beyoncè, Justin Bieber, and recently Dua Lipa this past April on her UK Tour, Mensa has gained notoriety outside of the genre and has emerged as a vocal leader in his Chicago community. Last March, Mensa launched his SaveMoneySaveLife Foundation in his hometown and told Billboard the inspiration behind his act of altruism. Despite his signing to UTA, Mensa will still be repped by WME internationally.
"I’ve been doing social justice work for some time, just out of my own resources and out of my own pocket, just because it’s important to me," he said to Billboard. "So whether that’s taking a bunch of people from Chicago down to Standing Rock or being in Flint, Michigan, or being in Palestine or Baton Rouge after Alton Sterling’s killing, I’ve been trying to, just as a man, be present and stand with the struggling and oppressed people around the world."
