Vic Mensa Drops New Song ‘No More Teardrops’

Vic Mensa has dropped a new song titled ‘No More Teardrops’. Marking the Chicago rapper’s first new music of 2020, it features appearances from Malik Yusef and Wyatt Waddell. Listen to it below.

The track, which was first teased earlier this month during a three-song virtual set for Lollapalooza, addresses police brutality in the wake of the killing of George Floyd while also criticizing white anti-maskers. “Police cars on fire in the streets/ Tear gas and the dogs on a leash/ The scene seem like something in the ’60s,” he raps, later adding: “White folks protesting cause they can’t leave/ Try twenty-five to life, that’s a real quarantine/ They just take the mask off when they can’t breathe/ But we got officers knees in our esophagus.”

Writing on Instagram, Mensa promised new music is coming soon: “But I can say that Vic is back creating the best music he’s ever made in his entire life. Be prepared. Love y’all, support bro every step. ❤️ 2020 is ours.”

‘No More Teardrops’ will appear on an upcoming Roc Nation compilation titled Reprise. A few days ago, Jorja Smith also shared a new song from the project, which “hopes to bring awareness to social justice issues”, with a portion of the proceeds going to “funding organizations that support victims of police brutality, hate crimes, and other violations of civil rights.”
