"We both figure it's smarter to just dead that shit."
Ski Mask The Slump God has announced that his beef with Vic Mensa is over, saying “We both figure it’s smarter to just dead that shit.”
The two rappers fell out after Mensa performed a freestyle for the BET Awards that condemned late rapper XXXTentacion‘s history of domestic abuse. At the time, Ski Mask demanded that Mensa apologise.
Speaking to TMZ, the South Florida rapper explained why they agreed to a truce: “Basically, a lot of shit was going on in the back end with me and Vic Mensa,” he said.
“It could have got to more dangerous shit than it… We stopped it. Me and Vic Mensa, our people talked, basically we just deaded it from where it was going ’cause it was going in a dangerous route.
“It’s enough Black violence, it’s enough gun violence. There’s enough young people with money out here wasting their careers on stupid shit like that. We both figure it’s smarter to just dead that shit.”
In October, Vic Mensa posted a video to Instagram explaining why he was compelled to speak out against domestic violence, saying “I vehemently reject the trend in hip-hop of championing abusers and I will not hold my tongue about it”.
This year has seen a number of feuds between musicians play out in public.
