Vic Mensa and Joey Purp stopped by Sway In The Morning yesterday for a lengthy interview which ended with an impressive joint freestyle.
While the quality of the freestyle may have caught some fans off guard, the collaborative effort did not. Both Mensa and Purp belong to the collective known as SaveMoney and announced a new tour together on June 10th, titled “Back With A Vengeance”.
Recently, Mensa has been taking every opportunity to showcase his freestyle abilities, but this time around with the help of Joey Purp, the session exceeded expectation. To kick things off, Mensa gave a few bars off the top, followed by an exchange of verses between himself and Joey Purp. This was impressive in itself, however fans were given a real treat when the two rappers began going line for line. As many know, this can be one of the most exciting ways of freestyling, especially when the chemistry between two artists is as prevalent as it is with Mensa and Purp.
Vic Mensa and Joey Purp have each been having considerably successful years thus far. Mensa with the release of his newest EP There’s Alot Going On, and Purp with the release of his mixtape iiiDrops. While Joey Purp hasn’t given much information on his next move, Vic Mensa is gearing up for the release of his debut album which will no longer be titled Traffic. A new titled hasn’t been provided along with a release date however Mensa’s debut album has been receiving a considerable amount of hype after signing to Roc Nation last April.
As fans wait on new material from each of the SaveMoney rappers, check out the full interview above in the gallery (Freestyle starts at 35:30).
