Vic Mensa Responds to XXXTentacion Controversy with “Empathy”

blame it on Shake October 17, 2018

To say Vic Mensa‘s been catching heat as of late would be an understatement. After catching backlash over choice words he had to say about XXXTentacion in a BET Cypher that was aired in front of the deceased rapper’s mother, the Chicago emcee is asking for “Empathy.”

In a new song that was released “in response to all the controversy,” Vic touches on his past issues with domestic violence (which were originally shared on “There’s A Lot Going On”) and his knack for making enemies, before (somewhat) admitting fault to the whole situation.

“Got a call from my ex, she forgive but she can’t forget… As a man we don’t understand the damages we’ve sewn just by stringing her along/ And everybody heard the song/ I fucked up, admit that I fucked up/ But I ain’t do that though, so I wanna judge but I sound like an asshole.”
