Meet Vic Mensa, the Chicago Rapper in Alexander Wang’s Squad

Just like the title of his new EP, “There’s A Lot Going On,” suggests, 22-year-old rapper Vic Mensa is keeping busy, collaborating with everyone from Pharrell to Kanye West, and breaking into fashion with the likes of Anna Ewers and Alexander Wang all the while. “I’ve been dressing weird for a long time,” he said. “So expressing myself through fashion is pretty natural to me.” From vintage Raf Simons to band tees to hand-drawn button-ups from L.A., get a look at his style, here.
