Last Wednesday (May 24), Vic Mensa‘s fiery 15-minute freestyle was posted on the Sway’s Universe YouTube channel. The Chicago wordsmith had a lot of things to get off his chest, including his past mistakes which, according to him, cost him a lot of fans. Midway through his freestyle, Vic acknowledged that dissing Drake wasn’t a wise decision.
“I fell victim to addictions and my mental state/Stupid s**t, like dissing Drake/That was a big mistake,” he rapped, referring to his 2017 Drizzy diss track “Danger.” “But when you raised in a cage, all you know is MMA/I dissed [Lil] Yachty, dissed Ak[ademiks], dissed XXX[Tentacion]/It was disrespect/ It made the fans disinvest.”
In 2018, Vic dissed the late Florida rapper in his 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards cypher months after XXX’s tragic death. Although Vic apologized to XXXTentacion’s mother, he drew backlash from both rappers and fans alike.
During his interview with Sway, at the one-hour mark in the video below, Vic revealed that he had spoken to Drake and Yachty and they both were on board to settle their differences. As for Ak, Vic is willing to come on his Off the Record podcast and squash their beef.
