It’s a bird, it’s a plane… No, it’s Vic Mensa testing out the new adidas Yeezy Boost 350 soles at Lollapalooza. While performing with Dillon Francis in Chicago this week, Vic decided to test his shoes, ankles, knees and guts out with a high-flying leap that would have made the late Rowdy Roddy Piper say, “Jimmy Superfly Snuka better watch out!”
Vic must have been watching parkour tutorials all week because he knew enough to keep rolling to transfer the impact and break his fall. After hobbling to his feet and waving off a stagehand who was rushing to his aid, Mensa continued the turn-up with a smile on his face and EDM drums blasting in his ears.
Whether or not he was shooting cortisone into his ankles backstage after the show has yet to be confirmed. One thing is for sure, though – when Vic climbs into the 15 foot high DJ booth, the price of admission starts to look like great value.
