When it comes to speaking out about issues plaguing the community of Chicago and abroad, Vic Mensa is definitely the voice you will hear.
During an interview with Real 92.3, Mensa called out 6ix9ine for his antics against Chicago emcees and his publicity stunt through the “hood,” calling the whole thing lame and slighting the “Fefe” rapper for disrespecting the very artists who influenced his music.
“That sh-t was goofy. That sh-t was lame. N*ggas got they style from Chicago,” said the SaveMoney collective member. “It’s a shame too because I like Tekashi’s music,” Vic Mensa said. “”But when I saw him pretending to be riding around Chicago like he was just on business, on the block, in the middle of the night, the night before talking about ‘Where y’all at? I’m on y’all block. I’m handing out sh-t because these Chicago rappers don’t wanna do nothing.’ Look at the facts, the receipts exist online. There are whole Vine videos of every line that Tekashi69 bit from Chicago rappers.”
On Wednesday (Jul 25) 6ix9ine replied via an Instagram comment telling Mensa to “suck his d*ck” on a repost via Mensa’s nemesis DJ Akademik’s Instagram account. Mensa who saw the comment, although he was not tagged directly, and screenshot the comment with a direct tag letting Tekashi know his stance.
In addition to calling out 6ix 9ine in the post, Vic Mensa also called out Akademiks for his shady caption on his repost of the interview, letting him know that their next encounter won’t be as restrained as previously seen on the YouTube show Everyday Struggle.
” Hmmmm I wonder if @6ix9ine wanna see me in these mf hands tho? ???? fuck all that security shit. & @akadmiks shut yo bitch ass up it’s on sight 4 u when I see u ?”
Although the promise was made clear, the “Reverse” emcee didn’t stop there, posting a video making it clear to both Tekashi and Akademiks that he is serious about his stance and his promise.
“For the record I never diss 6ix9ine,” Vic Mensa said, “All I said was that he took his style from several Chicago rappers, which he’s admitted and that he needs to pay our city it’s respect. So if you want to talk about suck my d*ck and all that, fight me then. Point blank.”
During the radio interview, 6ix9ine wasn’t the only one catching heat. Vic also called out legendary film director Spike Lee for his 2015 film Chi-Raq, stating that local artists didn’t get to have creative input on the hometown.
“I was actually in the Chi-Raq movie. I tried to get out and Spike Lee cussed me out. My lawyers were like we can’t really go into litigation with Amazon, n*gga. So I just told them don’t credit me, Spike Lee’s just phony as f*ck. Honestly, he’s a b*tch ass n*gga. And it’s f*cked up because I love Spike Lee’s art.”
