Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa Reunited for a Lollapalooza Performance

The two Chicagoans took it back to 2013, as Chance brought out Vic for a performance of "Cocoa Butter Kisses."

During his 2017 headlining set at Lollapalooza Chance the Rapper brought out Vic Mensa effectively ending any speculation about a perceived rift between the two Chicago artists. While Vic appeared on “Cocoa Butter Kisses,” from Chance’s 2013 project Acid Rap, many assumed there was some type of fall out between the two after Vic rhymed about fake friends and referenced “niggas that I used to be cool with” during a 2016 Los Angeles Leakers freestyle.

“Pull up on me I call Emory/I got shooters everywhere for my enemies/I had to fire my management I wanna be with my real friends/I ain’t feelin’ your energy/Why these niggas so fake/They so fake so fake…” Vic rhymed.

There was also the matter of Vic blacking Chance out of a photo featuring the two with Beyonce and Jay Z last year.

Regardless of what sparked the real, imagined or implied rift, fences were mended Saturday night when Chance performed “Cocoa Butter Kisses.” At the 4:57 mark in the video below—captured by YouTube user “goldieinhell,”—Chance brings Vic out for the track's second verse.

The extended set also featured Vic enjoying some solo shine, as Chance took a background role while Vic performed “Didn’t I.” You can see video of that performance below.

In a June interview with Bootleg Kev and DJ Damage of “Real” 92.3, Vic confirmed he and Chance have traded some texts about possibly hitting the studio again. So it’s entirely possible there may be another reunion of sorts for the pair.
