Vic was on J. Cole’s “What Dreams May Come” Tour along with Wale, and performed in Europe on Danny Brown’s tour. Mensa also has released collaborations with other artists here and there. Most notably, Vic’s recently been doing a lot of work with Kanye West.

Vic is featured on “Wolves” off Kanye’s upcoming album. They performed the track on Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary episode in February.
