In this special episode of UPROXX’s People’s Party — conducted via IG Live — Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh (virtually) sit down with Vic Mensa. You can tell this interview is going to be special from the outset, when Vic turns the tables on Kweli to talk about how Black Star’s “Thieves in the Night” was made. From there, the wide-ranging conversation zeroes in on the pros and cons of ex-President Barack Obama, protests and riots in Vic’s home of Chicago, police brutality, looting, and Vic’s music.
This is a powerful interview from two like-minded, politically active rhymers and certainly not to be missed.
This live episode was filmed on June 10, 2020 on UPROXX’s Instagram account (@UPROXX).
