(Radio.com) Rapper and singer Vic Mensa released his debut studio album The Autobiography in July, earning critical acclaim for his confessional lyrics and experimental style.

On Monday night, Mensa brought his new material to The Late Show and performed "We Could Be Free" with a strings section. Clad in a navy tailcoat with gold applique, Mensa's dramatic arrangement featured backup singers wearing robes emblazoned with the words "Police Brutality," "Sexual Abuse," "Domestic Violence" and "Mass Incarceration."

"We could be free /If we only knew we were slaves to the pains of each other," Mensa sang. "One thing I believe I can learn /To see my enemy as my brother." Watch the moving performance here.
