vic mensa says drake pressed his team over "danger" lyrics

Was Vic Mensa Also a Target of Agro Drake?

Vic Mensa released his second EP in as many years, The Manuscript, earlier this month. The project meant to whet our appetites for his No I.D.-produced Roc Nation debut, reportedly arriving this summer. But There’s Alot Going On, the EP he released last year, featured an aggressive track called “Danger” that found Mensa directing some not that subliminal lines towards Drake, who’s known for taking light shots at Kanye West and Jay Z—two important figures in Mensa’s career. According to Mensa’s interview on the web series Everyday Struggle, not only did Drake hear the lines, he and members of his crew pressed members of Mensa’s crew over them.

“There was a time when he made some disses, like he always does, subliminal things,” said Mensa. “He dug at fuckin’ Kanye, he dug at Jay Z. And so I said something in a rap about him, and then he start blowing up phone lines and, like, being extra pressed. Being real mad. And I’m, like, honestly, this is just rap. You was taking shots, and those are my niggas, so I’m going to say something too.”

On “Danger,” Mensa opened his third verse with the lines,“I don’t like the way that niggas talking like they bulletproof/ Until they gotta find out what a bullet do/ Catch two in your Canada Goose.” Five months earlier on “Summer Sixteen,” Drake rapped, “Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in/ They bulletproof.” The Canada Goose mention, of course, was a reference to the ongoing collaborations between OVO and the winter gear brand.

“I don’t know Drake like that,” Mensa continued on Everyday Struggle. “He was blowing up my man’s phone lines, having people press my assistant. I’m like come on, that’s corny. Y’all pressin’ my little white, redhead assistant at the club… That’s wack.”

Outside of the Chicago rapper’s comments, there’s no proof that such an incident actually occurred, but it certainly wouldn’t have been the first time Drake and his crew’s name has been mentioned in a situation like this. After his relationship with former OVO artist iLoveMakonnen devolved, Makonnen accused Drake of trying to fight him at a VMAs afterparty. Alleged Drake ghostwriter Mo-G insinuated that Drake and OVO had something to do with his getting jumped in 2016 after he publicly claimed that Drake never paid him for his alleged ghostwriting work.

More importantly, though, Mensa is on the verge of finally releasing his first major label album, which is slated to be his first full-length solo project since his breakthrough INNANETTAPE dropped in 2013. After a private listening session earlier this month, Fake Shore Drive’s Andrew Barber claimed that the album will compete for “album of the year” honors, and revealed that it features Chief Keef and Pharrell—the latter also appears on The Manuscript, which you can stream here.
