Vic Mensa Expands North American Tour, Adds Canadian Dates
Vic Mensa has made some big career moves in 2015, collaborating with Skrillex and Kanye West and signing with Jay Z's Roc Nation Records. Now, the on-the-rise Chicago rapper has expanded live schedule.

The dates run through the summer and into the early fall. The itinerary includes a number of already-announced festival dates, plus some freshly unveiled standalone headlining shows. In addition to stops in the U.S., Mensa will be coming to Canada for an appearance at Montreal's Illsonic Festival on August 15, followed by a Toronto gig at the Hoxton the day after that.

The leg is part of Mensa's ongoing "Traffic Tour." See the dates below; scroll past that to watch a 90-second tour video, which functions as both a recap for his past dates and a teaser for his upcoming shows.
