Fresh off of his recently-aired BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher, Vic Mensa is addressing the murky controversy that unfolded earlier this month in a new song. The issue tackled in “Empathy” stems from Mensa’s un-edited verse aimed at deceased rapper XXXTentacion and his own admission of domestic abuse.
“Only time you bear arms is in a wife beater, loser/Your favorite rapper’s a domestic abuser,” he spit in the edited version, which aired last night (Oct. 16). While some would argue that addressing the issue of domestic abuse in hip-hop is important, several others chastised the Chicago rapper, who reportedly admitted to choking his ex-girlfriend.
In “Empathy,” he addresses his transgression, rapping “Got a call from my ex, she forgive but she can’t forget/As a man we don’t understand the damages we’ve sewn just by stringing her along…”

Drake and Rihanna’s romance has always been something the pair kept quiet, but now Drake is revealing just how in his feelings he was for the singer.
During a recent interview on LeBron James’ HBO series The Shop, the 31-year-old rapper opened up about wanting Rihanna to be the mother of his children.
“As life takes shape and teaches you your own lessons, I end up in this situation where I don’t have the fairy tale, like, ‘Oh, Drake started a family with Rihanna and this is like so perfect,'” Drake began. “It looks so good on paper. By the way, I wanted that too at one time.”

Ella Mai was at the center of a recent Internet melee after Jacquees’ popular cover/remix of her song “Trip” was mysteriously wiped from the Internet. Many believed that since the “Quemix” was gaining tons of traction compared to that of the original that the “Boo’d Up” singer had something to do with its removal.
“Everybody be asking me why I don’t put my tmixes and sh*t on Spotify tidal and iTunes and sh*t. This is why,” the Republic Records signee wrote on Twitter.
The London songbird is setting the record straight. Mai appeared on Hot 97 for an interview with Ebro Darden to discuss the issue at hand, noting that she didn’t have much to do with the decision to take the cover down.
“I feel like my label made a statement, and there’s not really much else to say about it to be honest,” she explained. “People are gonna take it how they want….People don’t actually know the real ins and outs of the industry.”
“There was another big thing that was like, ‘oh you started doing covers, so how could you, like, be mad at someone for doing that?'” she continued. “‘Bood’ Up’ had five thousand remixes…It’s just when it comes to someone trying to monetize, then it becomes a different issue on the label side. That’s never going to happen.”
