Vic Mensa Says Ferguson Protesters Are ‘The Real Public Defenders’


Hip-Hop artists from J. Cole to T.I. have spoken out on the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. on August 9, and now rising rapper Vic Mensa has also expressed his thoughts on the incident and daily peaceful protests.

In an interview with the Huffington Post, the “Wimmie Nah” emcee described his initial reaction to the shooting and said the people of the St. Louis suburb are “the real public defenders.”

“Keep your goal in mind and vocalize your goal. They really have a stage right now,” the Chicago-native continued. “Whether or not their actions are being skewed or if their motivations are being skewed and misrepresented, they have a platform and people are listening. Don’t be gassed in vain. Those people are so brave.”
