Vic Mensa Continues to Defend Kanye West Against the Oasis Brothers

MC says it's racism, Yeezus was definitely rock n' roll.

Published August 5, 2015

Remember back in February when Vic Mensa defended his mentor Kanye West against rocker Liam Gallagher? In short, he said, "F**k Liam Gallagher," in an interview with the British newspapaper the Guardian. Now, according to Billboard, the rapper is elaborating on his distaste for the British musician, and he's bringing Gallagher's brother into it.

"Those guys are legends," he said of the Oasis brothers, Liam and Noel. "But also d**kheads. Ultimate d**kheads."


Adding the much-discussed Glastonbury set of his mentor Mr. West, the "U Mad" MC basically said just that about the musicians and even went a bit further calling them racists in the process. "I saw they were mad Kanye played Glastonbury," he said. "They were mad when Jay Z played too. Feels very racist to me. They're gonna say: 'No it's not about race, it's about guitar music, it's about rock n' roll,' but I mean, like, how many people do you feel are carrying the spirit of rock n' roll in 2015?"

He seems to think 'Ye reps for the genre pretty well, adding, "Would you not say that Yeezus, and a song like 'Black Skinhead' is carrying the spirit of rock n' roll? I can't understand how that's not f*****g rock n' roll."
