Releasing his first project through Roc Nation, There’s Alot Going On in June 2016, Vic Mensa‘s debut EP with the label was led by the incendiary single “16 Shots.”

The politically charged single, which speaks on the tragic and controversial shooting death of teenager Laquan McDonald at the hands of Chicago police, now receives a set of visuals. Speaking on the Ace Norton-directed video, Vic says “This record is like self-defense. “Because to me, Laquan McDonald represents Emmett Till, which represents every name down the line and since then a lot of things have changed, but one main thing hasn’t changed is that our lives are not respected.”

Premiered through TIDAL, both members and non-members alike can watch it below.
