Watch Vic Mensa’s Fiery Hot 97 Freestyle

The Chicago rapper’s appearance was worth the wait.

Vic Mensa stopped by Hot 97 on Wednesday to deliver his freestyle to resident DJ Funkmaster Flex, and he came prepared. "I always been waiting on my Flex freestyle," the Chicago rapper says before delivering just over four minutes of richly detailed bars over the classic beat for N.O.R.E.'s “Banned From TV.” No surprise, then, that there's a a bunch of nods to old school hip-hop artists, like Tupac, MC Shan, and Public Enemy.
