Video: Vic Mensa – “16 Shots”
Vic Mensa has released a new video for “16 Shots,” a song from this summer’s EP There’s Alot Going On. “16 Shots” is a hard-hitting police brutality protest that doubles as a tribute to Laquan McDonald, a teenager who was killed in 2014 when Chicago police shot him 16 times. The Ace Norton-directed clip depicts Mensa as a victim of police violence, attacked by officers with clubs, Tasers, and guns. TIDAL subscribers can watch below; note that the video is graphic and also includes dashcam footage of McDonald’s killing.
