Vic Mensa – “Heat It Up (Freestyle)”

Vic Mensa has been heated lately, and on his second freestyle in a week he’s hotter than ever. Seriously, maybe this guy should consider doing a whole album of freestyles; the energy here is better than “U Mad” or his somewhat slurry “Wolves” feature.

There’s a backhanded shot at Future here — “I do not respond / I’m like Ciara to that shit / So what?” but the full brunt of Mensa’s anger seems directed toward the accusations of plagiarism leveled at him by French rapper Monsieur Glace (Translation: Mr. Ice) regarding “U Mad.” Relevant lines: “How do they accuse me of plagiarizing shit that no one has heard? I guess that’s just an excuse for ya’ll to put my name in your words,” and later, “Bonjour to the fuck n—-s on Complex trying to hike views,” possibly in response to their further reporting on the topic. He’s got a point — to call Glace obscure is generous. Between this and his comments about Oasis, Mensa has definitely been airing out his hot temper this week. And he’s really never sounded better.
