Watch: Vic Mensa releases spooky music video for 'Dark Things'
Vic Mensa

Vic Mensa has shared a video for his new track “Dark Things.” As the title suggests, the song and video explore the darker sides of Mensa’s mind with the rapper appearing in misty, spooky woods--sometimes covered in blood and clad in leather--involved in some freaky cult-like ceremonies. 

As Rolling Stone pointed out, the subject matter of Mensa’s verses ruminate on the dark thoughts that can sometimes creep into the mind, especially when chemically altered: “This is absinthe, not Heineken/25, running out of time again/ 27 club how can I get in?” You can watch the video for Vic Mensa’s “Dark Things” above.

“Dark Things” is set to appear on Mensa’s upcoming EP, Hooligans. Vic talked about the new project while filling in for Zane Lowe on the latter’s Beats 1 show saying that not all of the songs are as dark as “Dark Things” and that some of them have “more fun summertime energy.” Hooligans arrives on Dec. 14 and features guest appearances from G-Eazy, Lil Herb, Ty Dolla $ign, Charlie Wilson and more.
