Vic Mensa Addresses Police Brutality On ‘No More Teardrops’
Many artists are using their musical platforms to address the social injustice that is reached a critical stage as of late considering the Black Lives Matter movement. We’ve heard amazing bars this year from vets like Black Thought right to rising emcees like D Smoke, and now Vic Mensa is adding something to the conversation with another single named “No More Teardrops.”
Also highlighting Malik Yusef and Wyatt Waddell, “No More Teardrops” is a round for round sound off everything tormenting the Black people group today — police brutality, street crime, Wall Street corruption and the amazingly hazardous prison system are just a couple of topics of discussion.
Listen to Vic Mensa’s incredible new song “No More Teardrops” beneath, and pay special mind to the Reprise venture curated by Roc Nation in the not so distant future.
I’m tired of only seein’ n****s at the funeral
Tired of learnin’ my homie’s name at the eulogy
I’m tired of wearin’ suits, man, this ain’t suitable
I’m tired of runnin’, but the cops keep shooting me
N****s dyin’ and we still buyin’ jewelry
N***a, this ain’t the time for the tomfoolery
A sign of the times, shit ain’t what it used to be
I throw a hoodie on, look at what they do to me
.223 cocked, I don’t need a handout
This Wall Street, we done got a bailout
They try to tell us to believe in the government
But even when Barack is president, n****s had to sell rocks
