My foot done slipped, I fell off of a bridge
But thanks to the grace of a greater power I didn't fall on my head
I could've landed on my neck and snapped it

from Vic Mensa – Magic Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Vic fell off of a Metra train bridge was trying to sneak into the Chicago music festival Lollapalooza in 2010. He fell after his forearm brushed a transformer and the electricity went up his arm.

Luckily, he landed on his feet when he could have landed on his head and died from a broken neck. He thanks God (the “greater power”) that he didn’t break his neck.

In an ironic twist, Vic was back at Lollapalooza in 2011, but this time he was performing with his band Kids These Days
