Filled with violent imagery of political protests, Vic Mensa’s new lyric video for “We Could Be Free” featuring Ty Dolla $ign puts a spotlight on the civil unrest across the world — from Charlottesville, Virginia to Palestine to Standing Rock. The visual captures the hate-filled actions of countless people while the lyrics of the track are scrawled on the wall in red paint.
“I wanted to make a video to show solidarity with people struggling against oppression all over the world,” Mensa said in a press release. “I took scenes from the military occupation of a village I visited in Palestine and juxtaposed them with racial violence in America to show how similar our struggles are and imagine a world without division.”
