You know Chance? Team light-skinned
One of Vic Mensa’s best friends is fellow Chicago musician and SaveMoney group member Chance The Rapper. Growing up in Chicago, a lot of young people leaned on being light-skinned. Both Vic and Chance have fairer complexions, so Vic is repping that.
We’re raised to believe that there’s something better about not being fully black, something eccentric about it. I’m saying I used to tell girls that I was mixed, which is a bold-faced lie! I’m light skinned and I used to lean on that because that’s something a lot of black people pride themselves on — Chance the Rapper
