Twenty One Pilots’ “Suicide Squad” hit, “Heathens,” can still be heard on loop on every single radio station in most major cities, regardless of genre. Capitalizing on the notoriety of the popular track, Vic Mensa decided to go in on the melodic beat about current events including police brutality and the unprecedented violence in Chicago.
Mensa has been quite active about sociopolitical issues in the last few months, including taking part of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests in North Dakota. In the musical realm, the rapper is still riding off of his EP drop last June, There's Alot Going On, which is to serve as the precursor for his forthcoming debut LP.
