In “What You Taught Us,” Vic Mensa Shared a Letter He Wrote to Virgil Abloh

Vic Mensa of Chicago delivers a letter to Virgil Abloh, the trailblazing artist and designer who passed away Sunday following a multi-year struggle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare form of cancer, on his latest track “What You Taught Us.”

Later on, Mensa ponders about the concepts of time, communication, and how he wants to be remembered. He raises the issue of being both flawed and celebrated, citing the resurfacing of assault charges in the wake of Kobe Bryant’s death as an example.

By the end of the song, Mensa returns to Abloh, recalling his influence.
