Over the weekend, BET recorded their annual Hip Hop Awards show. Vic Mensa was included in a cypher during the show, in which he dissed late rapper XXXTentacion who was shot and killed earlier this year.
Later in the show, the deceased rapper’s mom accepted the award for Best New Artist on his behalf. She was in the crowd as Mensa’s cypher played.
Ebro in the Morning speaks on the story during the Flashing Lights segment.
