93PUNX is a band created by front-man, Vic Mensa; it is also the name of his punk-rock inspired clothing line. In true punk fashion, 93PUNX started in his Silver Lake home (LA) where he would host shows for friends to showcase not only his music, but music from other artists with a message.
93PUNX is a representation of Vic expressing his music outside of rap; tying the nostalgic sound of punk rock in with issues in today’s social climate. He teamed up with Travis Barker of Blink-182 on creating his new sound and first project in the genre. Vic also collaborated with Good Charlotte, HR from Bad Brains and more.
Vic covered The Cranberries “Zombie” in wake of the 1 year anniversary of Dolores O’Riordan’s passing – “we connected to Zombie because we were born from violence”.
