Chance The Rapper And Vic Mensa Together At Lollapalooza
Beef status: crushed.
Chicago, IL – When Chance The Rapper told the Lollapalooza crowd, "I wanna get y'all jumpin' and shit man ... But I don't want to do it in a way where there is a large buildup, I just want to surprise y'all," it is unlikely that he knew what he had in mind.
Chance had the Lollapalooza crowd rocking with him heavy after a performance of "Favorite Song" from Acid Rap mixtape, but what happened next was really unexpected.
Half way through the "Cocoa Butter Kisses" (from the same mixtape) Opportunity brought Vic Mensa on stage to sing along with it, as well as the Canteen is The Autobiography of the opening "Say no."
The rappers bring friends on stage is nothing new, but what makes this movement different is that the Chance and Vic possibly had been at odds with each other for a while. Beef rumors swirled between the two chicagoans when Vic uploaded a photo of his birthday party to Instagram last year, with the Opportunity to not so subtly modified.
Vic Mensa took to his own Twitter account to confirm that the dispute had come to an end (and to reference his Roc Nation boss JAY-Z's "4:44"), writing "No one wins when the fights of the family. THE VIBRATIONS ARE BACK."
Opportunity had also been constant promotion of Vic's new album on his own Instagram page, call Mensa to the work of "inspiration" and "so special to me."
So inspiring. Vic's debut album, that means something special to me, but I guarantee that this song will touch you, regardless of how well you know it. GO to #TheAutobiography NOW
