Video: Vevo’s Why I Vote Series w/ Vic Mensa

Posted on

As the U.S election winds down, VEVO taps into the spirit of wokeness with its Why I Vote series. The launch editions features Chicago rapper, Vic Mensa. In it, he touches on the themes of police brutality, community relations and violence in his hometown. Follow up editions are expected with T.I and Ke$ha.

Our premiere piece centers on Chicago MC Vic Mensa, who speaks of the community reaction after the tragic death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald by a Chicago police officer in October of 2014. Mensa was personally involved in the neighborhood protests that followed, and saw change effected by voicing his power in the voting booth in subsequent elections. His passion rouses viewers to do the same, on both national and local levels.
