Vic Mensa Discusses The Tension Between Jay-Z & Kanye West

The Roc Nation rapper also talks about wanting to play Prince in a biopic.

(AllHipHop News) On the title track off There’s Alot Going On, Vic Mensa addressed being in the middle of a label bidding war between Kanye West and Jay-Z. The Chicago native ultimately decided to sign with Hov’s Roc Nation, and his choice apparently caused a rift in The Throne.

Jay and Ye would later have a very public spat that played out on concert stages as well as the 4:44 album. During an interview with Montreality, Mensa was asked about the tension between the two Hip Hop giants.

“Nobody likes it. I don't think they like it. That's the delicate thing about male ego. All relationships go through that - male, female, ego driven or not,” responded Mensa. “Relationships go through strain and the real relationships live past it, as I believe Kanye and Hov’s relationship one hundred percent has, and will."

Vic continued, “I’m not speaking from a place of even knowing that much about the situation. I think they’re all good though.”

Jay-Z recently spoke with the New York Times about the status of his relationship with Kanye. The Brooklyn-bred emcee expressed that he believes the longtime collaborators will get past their differences.

"I [talked to] Kanye the other day, just to tell him, like, he's my brother. I love Kanye. I do. It's a complicated relationship with us," said Jay.

Vic Mensa's discussion with Montreality also included him talking about wanting to play Prince in a biopic. He referred to the late musical icon as “the real King of Pop.”
