Mensa is also set to star alongside another fellow Chicago rap star Da Brat who will play a truck driver named LaPortia.
“[LaPortia is] a truck driver who’s just as comfortable passing through beds as she is through state lines. Her arrival in town will impact the Williams family.”
Vic Mensa and Da Brat join a star-studded cast that includes Luke James, Curtiss Cook, Yolanda Ross and Jacob Lattimore. The Chi is set to return to Showtime in May.
