Vic Mensa officially released his debut album, The Autobiography, Friday, July 28th. As he’s been doing for the past few weeks, Mensa is on a non-stop promo run all over the place. Yesterday, the Roc Nation rapper made his way up to Shade 45 and visited Sway In The Morning. By now you know when a rapper is up there, Sway has to have them rip the mic, and that’s exactly what Vic did. Taking on Kendrick Lamar‘s “HiiiPoWeR” and dismantles the track. Throughout the freestyle, he touched on topics like Prodigy’s death, gentrification, fame, Pimp C, the penal system and violence in Chicago. Of course Vic had to throw in a shot at Everyday Struggle’s own DJ Akademiks.
The former graffiti artist and recovering addict got into it with Akademiks in June, when Mensa was a guest on Everyday Struggle. After Ak brought up the Chicago music scene, Mensa said he wanted to “slap” him in the face before accusing Ak of “clowning” violent situations Chicagoans go through in real life.
