Vic Mensa – We Could Be Free (Feat. Ty Dolla Sign) (Official Music Video)

Vic Mensa delivered a lyric video for his The Autobiography track “We Could Be Free” featuring Ty Dolla Sign last month and now he comes through with the official music video.

Watch the visuals via Apple Music and check out a story he wrote for Time Magazine about his recent travels to Palestine. The Autobiography is available on Apple Music now.

Last summer I traveled to Palestine with some a group of artists, activists, writers & dreamers. The scenes I saw there will forever be etched into my memory. The oppression of Palestinian people under Israeli occupation is startling, frightening and suffocating. A lot of people told me not to talk about what I saw there, but sitting in a shanty town outside of Jerusalem I made a promise to a old man with a face of leather to tell the world what I had seen. Whether for fear of retribution or long standing cultural divisions, many decline to speak their mind when it includes the word “Palestine.” Showing me the Libyan slave markets, my father said “Son, do you see what they are doing to our people?” But I believe one injustice does not justify another, and the vitriol and brutality exacted upon the Palestinians was too much for me to hold my tongue about, so I wrote this op-ed piece for @time about my observations. This piece is not to spread hate against any religion, or exonerate anyone else for their crimes. These are just my thoughts, informed by what I’ve seen with my own two eyes. The link is in my bio.
