(AllHipHop News) Chicago-raised rhymer Vic Mensa was the latest guest on Peter Rosenberg's Open Late. The conversation covered Mensa addressing his musical mentor Kanye West suggesting African-Americans chose to be enslaved.
"I think he said some damaging things. I think maybe they weren't all the way thought through. I don't really want to say too much about it, because honestly, I got a lot of love for Kanye on a lot of levels," stated the artist/activist.
Mensa added, "Statements like that being put out without context is really damaging for us. It's not going to hurt Kanye. Kanye got a big estate with security guards. I can't ride for the f-cking black kid in Oklahoma that's the only black kid in the class. He's 13 and the other kids are like, 'You heard Kanye, get over it.' How can I help him? I can't help him. Only Kanye can help him right now and I hope that he does."
The "Reverse" song creator also talked about his recent back-and-forth with Killer Mike over gun reform. Vic stated he has respect for the Run The Jewels member, but the 25-year-old entertainer expressed disappointment that Killer Mike associated himself with the NRA at a time when the organization was attempting to discredit the Stoneman Douglas High School students leading the March for Our Lives.
