Watch Vic Mensa Debut New Track "16 Shots" at #JusticeForFlint

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

As you hopefully read up on, Sunday night’s #JusticeForFlint benefit show in Flint, Michigan was a huge success. Outside of raising awareness for the city’s water crisis, they also raised $145,000 in donations. The show boasted performances from Stevie Wonder, Janelle Monae, and resident Flint emcee, Jon Connor. Another performer who grabbed attention during the night was Roc Nation emcee Vic Mensa. Courtesy of Revolt, we’ve got a clip of Mensa’s performance, debuting a new song he calls “16 Shots.” Mensa intros the track by showing solidarity to those in Flint and likening the situation to what’s going on in his hometown of Chicago. Watch the powerful performance below. Just because the show is over doesn’t mean the conversation and support should end, #JusticeForFlint Donations are being collected via text. Text JUSTICE to 83224. All funds will be used to benefit the residents of Flint impacted by the water crisis, particularly the most marginalized communities.
