This lecture has been saved on my watch later list for years, maybe over 4. I’ve watched it multiple times and I’ve decided to start sharing some of my independent scholarly works including my scholarly work as a member of the City Colleges of Chicago and Governors State University. My independent works satisfy me more because it’s aligned with my passion.

We need to know (blacks, poor, indigenous peoples, etc.) that no one is coming to save us and we need to prepare those coming behind us for the real true world, and not the ideal world they teach us we will graduate into as we fake climb the ladder of success in capitalism and public systems.

Feel free to comment and share your thoughts. Please share this lecture with your people, they need to hear this.

Vic Mensa “3 Years Sober” and a Identity Crisis Advocate? Let’s critically analyze.

Well well well. What do we have here? A video claiming to promote a statement about identity.

“The ‘3 Years Sober’ video is a statement about identity. I put on a confederate flag dress to be able to laugh at a symbol of hate, and played tug of war with Mike Pence over birth control. I had my face written on to get ahead of everything I know people will say about me and had a diner full of BBQ Becky’s call the police on me for using the women’s bathroom. I know some in hip hop culture will see this and say ‘Vic’s gay’ (which I’m not), whereas if I was white they’d just say ‘he’s a rockstar.’ 93PUNX is about being yourself, fuck what people think.”

– Vic Mensa

He’s an artist and rock star so I can understand he wanted to be extreme but the man wears eyeliner and polish outside of this video. No man should wear makeup unless he’s into something other than being a man. This is my opinion.

Vic Mensa wearing eyeliner.

Critically analyzing the video, I can see the political statement that he’s making wearing the dress but he’s promoting LGBTQIA identity, as the main character is a transsexual or a drag queen. Which that could in itself be an identity problem. Why is a cross dressing man wearing a confederate dress playing tug of war with Mike Pence for “his” birth control? I don’t know, it’s a bit weird knowing men don’t use that form of birth control even though in 2019, I’m pretty sure it’s possible since a lot of mean are changing sex, surgically opting out for a pussy and a pair of tits.

Who’s identity is he advocating for? Surely, not the “black” identity crisis he’s addressing , maybe it’s his own. In summary he looks like he’s trying to tell us he wants to come out the closet but he’s confused. If you suck dick Vic it’s cool, but regardless to how you try to defend your image in this one as a “punk rock” move, this video is politically gay. The fact that you named your group 93Punx is gay as fuck because a punk being where we from as you know is a pussy ass, soft mutherfucker even though google and dictionaries will say something slightly different; that’s our operating definition in the hood. That’s uncolored people hood term for themselves.

You want to talk about identity issues let’s speak on our own as indigenous peoples and how black’s identity has been stolen reducing them to merely subjects in law; and not persons who are living beings.

Did You Miss “The Chicago Boat Scene Weekend” ? It was Bussin Hard.

Chicago, ILL– I have never experienced my city in this way. This event was amazing ! Over 500 boats came together to party for the weekend in the sea and on land. Chicago is such a mood and a destination for those who don’t know, for those who do, you’re winning. Some of your elite and prime professionals were out here and it was definitely the place to network and promote. I left many Blue Cheez Gang Dot Com business cards for the taking.

I got so drunk, I fell asleep but I did wake up to enjoy the rest of the festivities. I’m going to learn how to swim because I wanted to go out in the water so bad with all the others who were engaged in water sports and fun.

I was informed that last year someone died from allegedly riding a jet ski at night and the lifeguards took so long to come; they found his lifeless body 30 minutes after the incident. This year another man is missing and was last seen hopping boat to boat Saturday.

Percy Miller does it again! Setting precedent for those to follow in his footsteps to do it even bigger. It was so many famous figures acting I couldn’t keep up. I knew faces and I had to find a full cast list to see who everyone was. I was super high watching the movie too, so it made it even better. Some people said it was trash but I have a different perspective.

It was entertaining, as it should be because it was not rated so it was just a raw as movie. Accept it. I am proud of this legacy because it opens doors for my associates and I, who are next in line to take the production of culture to the next level. was entertaining, as it should be because it was not rated so it was just a raw as movie.

Symbolically he planted seeds of things you can invest in like sneakers (fashion), legal weed, restaurants, telecommunications, snacks, and other instruments for generational wealth. He also mentioned important subjects like gentrification, repair your credit (if needed), and trade lines to boost your credit.

I can say that Romeo kilt a potential good song for me, “Holla at Me”. I think that he should continue to use these opportunities to develop his style as a artist. I appreciate this independent film and the Miller’s efforts of owning our re-presentation.

Keep promoting generational wealth and entrepreneurship. I caught the messages.

Stay in yo bag P.
