New MV: Vic Mensa Releases Moving Visuals For “We Could Be Free”
Amongst it all, we could be free!
Today, Vic Mensa released the visuals to Autobiography single “We Could Be Free”. “We Could Be Free” featuring Ty Dolla $ign explores what freedom really means amongst a corrupt society. “We could be free / If we only knew we were slaves to the pains of each other / One thing I believe, I could learn / To see my enemy as my brother,” he croons over the 1500 or Nothin production. “Then we could be free, truly / And love could wash away all the sorrows / I’m not afraid to bleed, if it means / We’ll make a better today, not tomorrow,” he continues on the chorus. In the video, Vic Mensa delivers powerful images related to social issues in our country. “There’s a lot of division based on a lot of fear and I wanted to present an alternative that was without fear. That’s what the song represents,” he explained in an interview with Beats 1. “At the beginning, you have this infant in the womb, a safe space, you would think, but you’re hearing the turmoil outside. You have all these different scenes distorted around me of turmoil in the world,” he continued. On a day where we honor Dr. Martin Luther King for all the work he did, we’re reminded of how far we’ve come. Yet we have still have so far to go! Check out Vic Mensa’s “We Could Be Free” below!
