The rapper has set up a new business named ’93 Boyz’ which becomes the first Blac-owned marijuana company in Illinois, Chicago. “Selling weed was my first hustle. It taught me work ethic, and entrepreneurship and funded all my first music projects,” Vic said.

He continued, “as someone with a lifelong experience of anxiety and depression, it’s amazing to be able to help people facing those and other issues while working with something I love“.

According to the rapper, “the war on drugs has had a devastating impact on my community. Yet our representation in the cannabis industry is less than 2%. 93 Boyz is changing that narrative while combining high quality, tastemaker weed with socially conscious initiatives,” Vic Mensa shared.

Vic’s company, 93 Boyz, is partnering with aerīz, the largest aeroponic cannabis cultivator in the world, to provide sustainable, environmentally friendly products. The line includes premium flower eighths, pre-roll, and strain-specific vape cartridges from sativa to indica or custom hybrid blends.

In a report by BET, “93 Boyz aims to reinvest in communities and individuals historically disproportionately affected by outdated laws, prejudices, and assumptions concerning cannabis consumption“.

During an event at the Black Star Square to announce the concert, Chance The Rapper said “so what I am saying is we need a big a*s concert in Ghana … you’ll see the biggest artiste in the world coming down for a shared experience, you’ll see 38,000 people“.
