A few months ago, 6ix9ine posted a few videos of him strolling around the streets of Chicago handing out food and money to locals. “We’re in fucking Chicago, you know what I’m saying, we’re going to feed the homeless or whatever,” he said in an Instagram video. “I got 15 burgers here. Giving back to the community, because other Chicago rappers don’t give back.” 

This troll was part of his ongoing beef with Chief Keef, but when asked about it by Real 92.3 LA, Vic Mensa called the move “goofy,” saying 6ix9ine not only disrespected Keef, but the rest of Chicago. “When I saw him pretending to be riding around Chicago like he was on business...it’s like, 'Yo look up the fucking facts,'” the Chicago native said. “There’s whole Vine videos of every line Tekashi69 bit from Chicago rappers.”

“To come to Chicago, disrespecting the whole city like that because he got a beef with one person from the city, I felt like that was very goofy,” he continued.

This criticism, that 6ix9ine bites Chicago rappers' flows, most recently applies to his new single “FEFE” featuring Nicki Minaj. Fans quickly called out the 22-year-old for the familiar flow of the song's first verse, saying it sounded oddly familiar to Chicago rapper Valee’s feature verse on Z Money’s 2017 song “Two 16’s.”

Following Mensa’s interview, DJ Akademiks then did what he does best—stir the pot—posting about the video on his account. 6ix9ine responded to the post with the Instagram name @6ix9ine_writing, “Vic mensa can sukk my dikk with his mother’s lips.” He later changed his account to @6ix9ine.

Mensa quickly clapped back, threatening to put his hands on both 6ix9ine and Akademiks. 

Shortly after, Mensa shared a video post. “I never dissed 6ix9ine,” he says. “All I said was he got his style from Chicago rappers, something he has admitted, and that he needs to show our city his respect.”

Mensa also reiterated his readiness to fight both 6ix9ine and Akademiks. “I’ll turn your mother fucking face the color of hair,” he said directly to 6ix9ine.

Vic Mensa also acknowledged 6ix9ine removing the underscore from his IG handle, saying in a video on his Instastory, "He just got the underscore removed from his fucking name. Like that I give a fuck about this type of shit, honestly." He then posted a screenshot to prove it.

Considering Tekashi was kidnaped and robbed earlier this week, it doesn’t seem like the right time for the rapper to be making new enemies, but we’ll have to wait and see if he rises to Mensa’s challenge or attempts to clear the air. 

A little while later, Vic took to IG to tease the drop of his new single "Metaphysical." The record should be out on Friday.
