“Ready for the war, we got our boots strapped…100 deep on State Street, where the troopers at…the Mayor lyin’ sayin’ he didn’t see the video footage & everybody wanna know where the truth at…”
Vic Mensa has released the official visual for his single, 16 Shots. When the video footage of Laquan McDonald was released of him being literally shot down – 16 times to be exact by Chicago Police Officer, Van Dyke, many where upset & outraged at such incident by those whose job description is to “Serve & Protect”. Although it’s been 2 years since the tragedy, Vic doesn’t want any of us to forget what occurred October 20, 2014 as he reflect on the actual date Laquan’s life was taken away, the lack of actions & awareness from authority figures & the outcome of such doing because it could happen to any of us. Vic raps, “I can’t imagine if it was my own momma…got her 1st born son stolen from her…he never had a chance & we all know because he black…shot him 16 times, how f*cked up is that…”
