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.”
