Rapper Who Sang At 'March For Our Lives' Was Arrested For Gun Offense

One of the performers at the anti-gun March for Our Lives is on probation for firearms violations.

Washington, DC – The entertainment organizers for the anti-gun March for Our Lives hired a rapper who was on probation for possessing a concealed gun.

Vic Mensa, who sang his song “Now We Could Be Free,” dedicated his performance to Stephon Clark, a convicted felon who was fatally shot a week before the march after he was caught breaking into cars and homes. He was shot after taking a shooting stance with a cell phone when facing off against Sacramento police.

He also dedicated the song Decynthia Clements, who was fatally shot when she lunged at officers with a knife after a long standoff with police.

Mensa also told the crowd his song was dedicated to “all the unarmed black men and women killed by police weapons," XXL Mag reported.

However, what the rapper failed to tell the crowd of gun control activists was that he had his own concealed-carry permit, and that he had been arrested in February of 2017 and charged with a felony count of carrying a concealed weapon after he tried to carry his gun in California with a concealed-carry permit from another state, TMZ reported.

The incident began when Mensa got stopped for a traffic violation in Beverly Hills and the weapon was found. He spent one night in jail and then was released on $35,000 bail.

He pleaded no contest to carrying a concealed firearm in his car in July of 2017, and was sentenced to two years’ probation, a $500 fine, and $1,325 in restitution, TMZ reported.

After his performance at the march, Mensa challenged rapper Killer Mike on Twitter to a debate after the other rapper spoke out against gun control and the planned march.

Killer Mike tweeted back and seemed to accept the challenge.

Rapper Common also performed at Saturday’s march, despite the fact that he’s been a vocal advocate for Joanne Chesimard, a convicted terrorist and cop-killer who has been on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Most Wanted list since she escaped from prison in 1979.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama was widely criticized for inviting Common to the White House in 2011 for an arts event during the same week that tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from across the nation were gathered in the nation’s capital to honor fallen heroes at National Police Week, WNBC reported.

Again, due to the internet, we see how other countries are able to provide healthcare, provide higher education, advance technology like self driving cars, decrease fossil fuel dependence much much better than we do in the states. The only people trying to hold on to this old shit is old people.

Would you please hurry up and pass from this mortal coil? You're ruining our standing in the world.

I never said I didn't enjoy "some" black music. The first concert I ever attended was Sly and the Family Stone. Great act and loved their music. But like Bigfoot, decent black acts are difficult to find. Just saying, putz. Also, every youth starts off a liberal....then they grow up and realize all that free shit they want doesn't grow on trees. Have you grown up yet, Cheech?

Lol well you can argue back all you want. You were once a white youth enamored by black music. Played by white liberals.

There's irony somewhere in there. I'll let you find it yourself.

Actually, it wasn't popular because it truly wasn't that good. It took some talented white boys to take the sound and turn it into something people would actually listen to. Don't be stupid.....stupid.

Like we all know, white youth love, and have always loved, black culture in America.

It wasn't popular because it wasn't allowed to be popular. Don't be dumb.
