Vic Mensa debuts new song during virtual Lollapalooza 2020

He performed “No More Teardrops” alongside other fan favorites.

Vic Mensa has debuted a new song titled “No More Teardrops,” during his set at the virtual edition of Lollapalooza 2020.

On the track, the Chicago native makes a powerful statement against police brutality. “Police cars on fire in the streets / Tear gas and the dogs on a leash / The scene seem like somethin’ in the ’60s / They takin’ knees like Monica Lewinsky,” Mensa spits.

Elsewhere during his Lolla set, Mensa also performed a new version of his 2016 song “16 Shots,” with an altered verse that calls for justice for Breonna Taylor: “Cops killing kids and coming out on bail / But Breonna Taylor’s killers still not in jail / So it’s one, two, three, four, five, six / And I got everybody yelling, fuck 12.” Mensa closed things out with a performance of fan favorite “We Could Be Free.”

“No More Teardrops” is Mensa’s first solo release since 2019’s “Summer’s Over,” featuring Keyon Christ. His last EP, Hooligans, was released in December.
