Vic Mensa has disclosed that his surname caused him a lot of problems growing up.
According to him, the meaning of his name in Spanish is an insult, thus, when playing football with his Mexican friends as a kid, the surname caused him troubles.
“I don’t do my people dirty. I just don’t do it. So if somebody was wanting to beef with me, they wouldn’t really have all that much ammo.
"They would have to start digging and making things up ’cause I just keep it really really really real with my guys and people that I move with, that I do business with. They’ll testify I’m a hunnid,” Vic told Real 92.3.
Vic Mensa is signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation record label.
