VIC MENSA GOES OFF😡 ON DJ AKADEMIKS ON EVERYDAY STRUGGLE SAYING” I WANTED TO SLAP YOU IN YOUR FACE” 😲.
Vic Mensa pulled no punches during his appearance on Complex’s Everyday Struggle. The Manuscript rapper unleashed a barrage of criticism toward DJ Akademiks when the panel began discussing the topic of Chicago rap.
Akademiks asked Vic about the MC’s thoughts on Hip Hop commentators outside of Chicago commenting on the city’s violence. The question set Vic off as he took issue with the online personality’s exploitation of his hometown.
“I wanted to slap you in your face, honestly,” Mensa told Akademiks. “And I’m just seeing you here. I’m like this is a tame environment, so I will keep it to my words. But I really feel as if people exactly like you sensationalize and made a following off of clowning situations that we go through in real life. And I think niggas ain’t have no right. You specifically, you ain’t never had a right. What ever made you feel like you had a space to have a perspective on our people dying on a daily basis?”
Akademiks countered by saying he tried to provide a different perspective. He claimed he was not glorifying the violence like others did, but Mensa didn’t agree and condemned Akademiks’ sensationalism.
“There was nothing constructive about it,” Mensa said of Akademiks’ coverage. “And I’ma tell you the truth — I really think you a bitch.
