Vic Mensa has released his Down To Start A Riot documentary as FADER‘s first-ever cover story. The 12-minute clip follows the Roc Nation signee and his SAVEMONEY to his hometown of Chicago where they share stories that happened in various places around the city. Director Aaron Brown says:
“I had the idea of trying to explore the genre of documentary, just trying to pick the pieces apart of a rapper,” Brown says of the dramatic subway station session. “I was thinking of an acapella verse as a voiceover in a documentary, that’s what it was. Just trying to freshen it up. We’ve all seen a bunch of rap videos and a bunch of documentaries, so it was asking, how can we think about them as one thing.”
Watch the clip above and be on the lookout for Vic’s debut album to impact very soon.
