Vic Mensa and Joey Purp stopped by “Sway in the Morning” for a long interview touching on many subjects. The climax of the show came, though, when it was time for both rappers to lay down a freestyle.
They knew only their best rhymes would suffice — and they seemed to battle back and forth Watch the Throne style. Vic and Joey took turns throwing down bars over a classic instrumental. Each give their own impressive lines but Joey comes away with the W today with an incredible closing portion.
In the interview Joey and Vic touch on each of their top five favorite rappers. Vic’s ended up being a lot more old school with Jay Z, Kanye, André 3000, Pimp C, J Dilla — while Joey named a newer rapper in Lil Wayne and Big L. Tagging along in their interview was a fan named Mitch that Vic befriended through Twitter. The kid gained some attention when Vic tweeted he was being kicked off a plane because he was talking on the phone with a “depressed fan.” Well, that fan is Mitch.
Check out the full interview below and skip to 35:30 to catch the epic freestyle.
