Vic Mensa has always been a magnetic and energetic live performer. He took things up a stage in terms of concept for his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's show last night though. The Chicago MC was on the show to perform "16 Shots," his fiercely outspoken single inspired by the death of Laquan McDonald at the hands of police in 2014. Mensa's T.V. performance included backing dancers manhandling him while dressed in police riot gear. He also delivered the opening a capella, emphasizing the powerful lyrics. Check out the performance above.
