Just in time for Suicide Squad to be under the tree.

Today, Chicago MC Vic Mensa dropped his remake of Twenty One Pilots' "Heathens."

For the smash soundtrack cut from Suicide Squad, Mensa himself got fully in the spirit by dressing up as the film's Jared Leto take on the Joker in the cover art.

But it's not all about the looks or the jokes, it's about the beats and rhymes. Mensa turns the track into an absolute banger, keeping the infectious melodious hook to start the track, and then completely rips it up, bouncing back and forth between the plight of current Chicago to referencing a certain Disney Channel original movie when shouting out Twenty One Pilots.
