The Bet Hip Hop Awards were pre-recorded this past weekend and the ceremony recognized the late XXXTentacion with Best New Artist as well as honoring Cash Money honcho Lil Wayne with the ‘I Am Hip Hop’ Award. While the full show is yet to air at the end of the month, rappers Vic Mensa and Trippie Redd have some smoke brewing between the two.
Yesterday, Monday October 8th, Mensa took to his Instagram to address the BET cypher where he dissed the late XXX for allegedly abusing women. In the clip Vic states, “Recently I did a freestyle for the BET Awards cypher, addressing and condemning rappers who unabashedly abuse women and those who stand up for them and even call them legends.” Alluding to X, Vic apologizes for his remarks in his rap but stood by his statement regarding domestic abuse.

Although the Chicago MC meant no harm against X’s mother. who was in attendance at the awards show, Trippie Redd had a problem with Mensa’s diss. Trippie hopped on to social media to call out Vic, telling him to “Pull up to L.A. We want to fight.”
Trippie wasn’t the only artist to call out Mensa, Zoey Dollaz took to Twitter to get some things off his chest and X’s close friend Tank Head also responded to dissing X.
Yo @VicMensa you pussy .
