The performance, which is more than impressive, arrives a few months after I TAPE and hears Mensa touch on starting his own business and namedropping the likes of Game of Thrones, John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen, Maya Angelou and more. It evidently blew the minds of DJ Sourmilk and Justin Credible, with the latter saying, “Anyone who asks me my top five L.A. Leakers freestyle — if I don’t say Vic Mensa, you slap the sh*it out of me right there.”
Mensa’s last project dates back to March 2021’s I TAPE and it was recently announced that he will be starring in African/America, Sky Dennis’ biopic of the late Linda “ProKid” Mkhize. The artist will portray the role of Sydney Hall/Syd Money, “a Howard University alum who partners with ProKid and helps spearhead the making of the Soweto native’s groundbreaking album, Heads and Tales.”

Elsewhere in music, Nas revived his 1993 cut “Life Is Like a Dice Game” with Cordae and Freddie Gibbs.
