Vic Mensa made it clear he’s sick of rappers comparing themselves to the late Tupac Shakur. Kodak and Joey, who’ve recently had a few thoughts about Pac (and Biggie), fit the bill for who Vic could be referring to.
Just a few months ago, Joey Badass got his ass handed to him by the Internet when he said in an interview with Genius: “I already know I’m a better rapper than 2Pac is. That’s just facts. One-on-one battle, I’ll flame Pac.” When pretty much no one agreed, he clarified his comment on Twitter, saying: “I was referring to rap skill. Bar for bar. Not accolades or influence… and I back myself 1000 times.” Still, no one agreed.
Kodak’s comparison wasn’t as self-important, as it was ambitious. He told XXL last year for their Freshman Class issue, “I’m better than 2Pac and Biggie. I say that, so now you know where my head at.”
Listen to Vic take aim at his peers just above.
