Vic Mensa, G Herbo, Taylor Bennett and Nick Grant 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher
After a week of speculation,Vic Mensa's XXXTentacion diss has finally surfaced. Earlier tonight (Oct. 16), BET aired their 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, and during the last of their customary cyphers, which included a verses from G Herbo, Taylor Bennett and Nick Grant, Mensa lets loose.
Spitting over N.O.R.E.'s "Banned From TV" beat played by DJ Premier, Mensa dropped off some bars seemingly directed at XXX and a few others.
"Only time you bear arms is in a wife beater, loser/Your favorite rapper's a domestic abuser," Mensa rapped, referencing domestic abuse allegations leveled against X, who was shot and killed during a robbery this past June.
Elsewhere in his verse, Mensa seemingly directs some shots at 6ix9ine. If you recall, Mensa clapped back at a 6ix9ine fan page on Instagram after someone using the page dissed him in an IG comment. In a subsequent interview, 6ix9ine dismissed Mensa by saying that nobody knew songs from the Chicago rapper.
Moving on a bit from Mensa, though, Herbo, Bennett and Grant also served up some tight bars. For his part, Bennett delivered a tight rhyme scheme as he switched flows multiple times throughout his verse. Picking up from where the first two left off, Herbo delivered imaginative flexes, and Grant dropped a flurry of clever one-liners.
Peep the entire cypher for yourself below.
