Vic Mensa has been released from custody after he was arrested at Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport with a stash of LSD and a variety of psychedelic mushrooms.
The Chicago emcee (born Victor Kewsi Mensah) was charged with felony narcotics possession charges on Saturday (Jan. 15) following his return to the U.S. from Ghana.
In his first comment since his arrest, Mensa wrote on Twitter, “Wow what a trip.” And in a followup tweet, “I’m freeeeeee. Love you all god works in mysterious ways.”

As previously reported, Customs and Border Protection officers claimed that an examination of Mensa’s luggage found 41 grams of liquid LSD, around 124 grams of psilocybin (mushroom) capsules, 178 grams of psilocybin gummies and six grams of psilocybin mushrooms.
It remains unclear what obligations he still has with D.C. law enforcement following the incident.
The 28-year-old MC had been chronicling his trip to Africa with a string of social media posts over recent weeks, including snaps with fellow MC Chance the Rapper alongside Ghana’s president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
