Vic Mensa Discusses His Politically-Charged "We Could Be Free" Video

Watch the Roc Nation rapper's interview with Zane Lowe.

(AllHipHop News) "We Could Be Free" is the closing track on Vic Mensa's 2017 album The Autobiography. A politically-charged music video for the song was released on Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2018.

Mensa spoke about "We Could Be Free" during an interview with Beats 1 Radio's Zane Lowe. He broke down scenes from the visuals.

"At the beginning, you have this infant in the womb, a safe space you would think. But you're hearing the turmoil outside and seeing how that affects the infant in the womb," explained the Chicago-bred wordsmith.

Mensa went on to point out that footage from protests in Charlottesville, Palestine, and Standing Rock are projected behind him in the clip. Religion also played a big part in the imagery presented in the "We Could Be Free" music video.

"You have religion as a main source of division between people. I don't think at its core that's what religion was meant to be, but we juxtaposed those things in the video to show it doesn't have to be that way," said Vic.
