With his Roc-A-Fella neck tattoo front and center, Roc Nation’s latest acquisition Vic Mensa is back with a new freeverse. Paying homage to Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella’s infamous 2001 Hot97 freestyle session, the Chicago emcee offers up some bars of his own over a Biggie classic with his “Heir To The Throne” freestyle. Check them out below, and since I’m feeling nostalgic, I’ve included the epic session as well.
UPDATE: After giving the track another listen, it seems like Vic is ready to get in the ring with Travi$ Scott. The two already went back-and-forth on Twitter a little while back, and now Mensa is seemingly taking it to wax. While spitting the following lines, Scott’s ad-lib is repeated in the background. I know it’s not 100% concrete, but let’s keep it funky… this is a clear message.
N*ggas is targets and we ain’t even started
