Vic Mensa Blacks Out on New Hot 97 Freestyle
If you're thinking about going up against Vic Mensa in a freestyle battle, you might want to think long and hard about it.
The "OMG" rapper stops by Funkmaster Flex's radio show on Hot 97 in New York City, where he spits a mean freestyle over N.O.R.E.'s "Banned From TV" instrumental, where he addresses a slew of different topics and seems to take some more shots at DJ Akademiks.
If you recall, the Chi-Town native appeared on Complex's Everyday Struggle series, where he confronted Akademiks for promoting Chicago in a negative light on his platform. He felt as though the personality was making a mockery of Vic's home city and the violence it faces, as the rapper lost one of his close friends in recent years. While Mensa exchanged some harsh words with Akademiks at the time, he has continued to share his distaste for his brand on freestyles and in interviews.
Vic has been stopping by a slew of radio shows over the last month as he promotes his recently-released The Autobiography album. The long-awaited project from the entertainer contains features from the likes of Pharrell, The-Dream, Ty Dolla $ign and more and was executive-produced in large part by the legendary No I.D.
