Report: Vic Mensa Arrested on Felony Weapons Charge

Vic Mensa was arrested February 28th and charged with a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon, Billboard reports. Beverly Hills police reportedly stopped the Chicago rapper for allegedly running a red light and having tinted windows.

Per TMZ, Mensa told the police he had the gun in his possession, but was arrested after it turned out he had an invalid carry permit from another state. Police confiscated the gun. Mensa spent the night in jail and was released on $35,000 bail.

Beverly Hills police previously detained Mensa in 2016 and accused the rapper of stealing merchandise from Barneys. Mensa posted about the incident on Snapchat, denying the allegations and accusing the police of racial profiling. “This should be funny, but really, I got shit to do, man,” he said. “It’s like, you can’t be a young black man out here doing anything – legal, positive, and you still get treated like a criminal.”

Last year, Mensa released a seven-track EP, There’s Alot Going On, as he continued to prep his long-awaited debut album. The politically charged project featured songs about the Flint water crisis and the police shooting of Chicago teen Laquan McDonald. Mensa also became an activist in his own right, speaking out against police brutality and Donald Trump, and joining the Dakota Access Pipeline protests at Standing Rock.

Safaree says that with the amount of support he provided to Nicki’s music career over the years, it’s only right that she pay him off now that they’re no longer an item. In addition, he believes Meek Mill did some slick isht (that ultimately didn’t pay off) to get at Nicki after he trusted him enough to do business with her without him serving as a liaison.

He also admits that much like Remy…Nicki’s been trying to block his appearances and ability to tell his story as well. To top it all off, Safaree sent out this tweet about how disheartened he is by Nicki’s actions:

We’re noticing a pattern…seems like Nicki definitely tries to thwart and shut down anyone she sees as a threat to her image.

Do you think Nicki owes Safaree a check for his years of ghostwriting supporting her career…or should he accept the payment he already received and just move on?
