Watch: Vic Mensa Reflects On The Reasons He Votes In VEVO’s ‘Why I Vote’ Campaign

Vic Mensa is the first artist to discuss the 2016 Presidential Election and encourage young people to vote as part of Vevo‘s Why I Vote campaign.

In the clip, the Chicago native reflects on his upbringing in city’s South Side neighborhood and his parent’s influence on shaping his interest in taking part in the democratic process. Vic then goes on to speak about being a part of the Chicago protests following the execution of Laquan McDonald by law enforcement.

The 22-year-old went on to use his voice again by voting for Kim Foxx in the Democratic Primary for State Attorney, who ultimately ousted Anita Alvarez, a two term prosecutor that was widely criticized for her handling of McDonald’s death.

Mensa is joined by T.I., Kesha, and Matt from the American Authors. Watch Vic answer the crucial question ‘Why I Vote?‘ above.

[In Fashion] Alexander Wang’s Obsession with Female Rappers; From Foxy Brown To Azealia Banks

 

I should have known it was love at first sight when Azealia Banks showed up as Alexander Wang’s date for the 2012 Met Gala! And now she has just been made the newest face of Wang’s T Fall 2012 collection. The campaign video premiered today, with an array of beauty shots with Banks mouthing the words to her dope track, Van Vogue. But what many of you may not know, is that Mr. Wang has a certain affection for dope brown female rappers.

As a matter of fact, Rapstress, Foxy Brown sat front row, and performed for Wang’s After party for his Fall 09′ Collection just a few short years ago.

As you can see from the pics of both a sweaty Wang and Brown, they partied like it was …2009!

So it’s new surprise that he’d tapped into the talents of the fresh Harlem MC. Step into the new campaign video featuring Banks below …

I hope Banks is ready to pay homage, cause this is one opportunity that might not have had happened without Foxy’s precedent.

I’m Just Sayin’ …

Sprayground is an exclusive lifestyle brand selling deluxe backpacks and accessories.  Conceptualized for the consumer who is consistently on the go and carries his or her life in a bag, Sprayground provides a solution for the fashion savvy person who relies on a durable and comfortable bag.

Designer David Ben David, aka DBD grew up in Miami painting, skating, surfing, and always on the go, packing his whole life in his backpack.  All DBD could find were bags of the same old solid colors and shapes that had no fashion appeal.  After attending The School of Visual Arts for Product Design, it only made sense for DBD to develop his own art inspired backpack line.  DBD creates striking backpacks that are technically designed and extremely functional.  With strong attention to craftsmanship and high quality materials, DBD has revolutionized the bag industry.

Sprayground’s sleek construction and hidden features visually stand out from its category and really create a bold statement.  Sprayground can be found in today’s hottest boutiques and retail stores in over 8 countries.  Sprayground Bags are made from durable polyester fabric and feature a sleek construction with hidden features, such as velour Laptop, Tablet and sunglass compartments, ergonomic padded back support, and stash pockets- just to name a few.  With its advanced functionality that has become our signature, Sprayground is the brand that lets everyone express themselves.

Perfect for any occasion! Literally!

The bags retail for about $50 and you can purchase them all HERE..
