Watch Vic Mensa's interview with LA Real 92.3.
There has been a fair amount of speculation on whether or not Vic Mensa's Instagram picture of a blurred out Chance the Rapper, coupled with his combustible L.A. Leakers freestyle, constituted a shot at Chance. During an interview with Real 92.3, Mensa dismissed notions that he had beef with anybody.
"I don't do my people dirty," he said. "I just don't do it. So if somebody was wanting to beef with me, they wouldn't really have all that much ammo. They would have to start digging and making things up 'cause I just keep it really really really real with my guys and people that I move with, that I do business with. They'll testify I'm a hunnid."
"I'm not worried about nobody at all," he continued. "Niggas don't want that type of problem with me."
Although he never mentioned Chance by name, when asked if he felt a competition with Chance, he responded, "Competition is healthy. Absolutely."
On his ambitious new EP There's Alot Going On, Mensa explores the Laquan McDonald shooting, the Flint water crisis, and his own personal demons. If that project didn't convince listeners of his competitive and passionate nature, he spoke on his artistic proficiency with 92.3:
"Do I think that I'm better than everybody rapping? Yes. And not just on some every rapper gotta think they're the best. I really just don't think a lot of these rappers are very good. A vast majority of them are not very good. You got a small handful of people that are good and I know most of 'em and respect all of 'em, but like I said, that's a handful. Do I plan on coming at all of them? Not just 'I'ma diss niggas,' but yeah. I'm coming for that spot for sure."
