Vic Mensa – “Why I Vote” #WhyIVote [Video]

Vic Mensa

By Jack Barnes

With the first Presidential debate this evening, I wanted to pass along the premiere episode of Vevo’s new original series, “Why I Vote.” This election is proving to be a historic one, and we feel it’s imperative to help our viewers understand some of the most significant issues facing our country. One great way: through the lens of their favorite artists. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.

In the powerful clip, Chicago-born rapper, Vic Mensa, shines a light on police brutality, community relations and violence in his hometown. This issue hits really close to home for Vic, as he suffered the loss of a close personal friend after an incident with law enforcement. As a result, he’s gotten involved in local politics to help effect a change in local leadership and encourage others to speak up through their vote.

Additional episodes will feature artists including Kesha, T.I., American Authors and more.
