Vic spoke on the incident during a recent interview. He said,

“I was in a point of time since probably 2013 where I jumped from drug to drug as, like, a creative crutch. It was really like a handicap, but I got to a point where I just felt like I needed drugs to write, to be creative, and thought it was psychedelic drugs.”

One night, Mensa was in the studio with a few friends and they started doing Acid.

“Somehow things just took a really negative turn. I just felt really low and at the bottom of it, and I was on the ground trying to sink into the floor. Then I went outside and I went to my car. It was near Halloween and I had this toy pistol in my trunk, it was part of my costume. And I’m just glad it wasn’t a real pistol. I was just thinking about bridges and all that suicidal shit.”

Mensa says the drug use put him in a dark place.

“It scarred me for a while. I was definitely dealing with that bad trip for at least a year.” nce at.

I truly have a lot of respect for Mensa. As an artist, he makes it a priority to address relevant topics in his music. Artist like that make me grateful for them because this is what the young generation needs. A leader. Someone who gets it and can use their talents to teach.
