    Look at Vic when Gates get on, its like he’s saying “No no no nigga that aint fresh”

  • Couldn’t even tell that was Vic mensa…Wow. Kevin gates and Isaiah Rashad did their thing tho.

  • Dave

    Wow this was dissapointing. Vic slumped. Chance did a old verse. Isaiah did alright. Gates did the best and i barely listen to his music. August was just there.

    • Mez D

      Same here. Chance brought some energy but that was an old verse. Isaiahs was pretty dope. And I’ve seen Vic spit way crazier on like Sway and all over youtube I don’t get why hes holding back for this xxl shit
