Here’s the clip you’ve been waiting for.
For the last week or so, Vic Mensa has received major backlash for his apparent diss toward late rapper XXXTentacion, and we finally have the actual footage of the cypher that will air on BET’s 2018 Hip Hop Awards.
View the clip below.
Here's the Vic Mensa XXXTentacion Diss. BET decided to bleep it out so no one would get upset but it wasn't bleeped out when X's mom and family was in attendance during the filming of the awards https://t.co/gNwuNkSNz1
DJ Akademiks was kind enough to break down the bars for us.

Now it’s evident that XXX was a troubled man facing multiple legal issues, and Vic’s verse was recorded before XXX was killed, but does that justify Vic’s views toward the rapper?
Below is the clip Vic posted to his Instagram account in response to the backlash he was receiving for his verse in the cypher.
Protect women. Domestic & sexual abuse are not excusable because you have talent or you are troubled. With that said I was not aware his mother would be in attendance & I offer her my deepest condolences.
