Vic Mensa goes on a trip into his own psyche in the new video for "Rollin' Like a Stoner." The single is from his debut LP, The Autobiography.
As the title suggests, Mensa's self-directed video sees him dangerously driving around hazy streets on a motorcycle and in a car, unfazed by the repercussions of his actions. Later, Mensa stares at his own devil-horned reflection before falling into a flashback involving his mother tucking him into bed.
"The 'Rollin' Like A Stoner video is about reckless abandon & escapism," Mensa said of the video in a statement to Merry Jane. "The whole thing was filmed on a stage, as a comment on life as an entertainer. I was watching films like Bye Bye Life and Birdman, and 1920s westerns."
"It's a journey it takes you on as a listener, it's a story," Mensa said. "A very detailed story that's all very interconnected."
