Chicago State University drum line performs in Vic Mensa’s new music video

When we last heard from Chicago rapper Vic Mensa, he was standing virtual Lollapalooza 2020 on its head with the majestic “No More Teardrops,” a searing indictment of racist violence as well as a call to action. On Wednesday, Mensa set up camp in Bronzeville to record the video for “Teardrops,” accompanied by the Chicago State University Marching Soul of Chicago drum line.
