Vic Mensa and DJ Drama might be up to something. The Roc Nation MC appears to be teasing a collaborative mixtape with the Gangsta Grillz DJ.
Taking to Twitter on Saturday (Oct. 21), Mensa asked fans about the possibility. “i know y’all love the freestyles,” he said. “maybe i should do a tape with @DJDRAMA… what y’all think?”

Drama appeared to celebrate the possibility, responding to the tweet with four fire emojis. It is still unclear whether the duo has already created the project, or if they will end up linking up.
Mensa has spent part of the year supporting his debut album, The Autobiography. Some of the promo has included freestyles, including a rhyme fest over the instrumental to Kendrick Lamar’s “HiiiPoWeR,” and a September Hot 97 appearance, where he rhymed about JAY-Z, Aaliyah, and Tupac Shakur.
Up next, Vino is heading out on “The 4:44 Tour” with his mentor, Jigga. The trek is set to run from Oct. 27 in Anaheim through Dec. 21 in Los Angeles.
In July, Mensa spoke with Rap-Up about how much Shawn Carter contributed to his debut album. He also celebrated the Roc Nation boss’ authenticity. “Before I ever met him, I felt like I knew him very well,” he explained. “He really is the guy from his music, so I guess I did. I bought The Blueprint on CD…and was non-stop repeat listening to that on a Walkman. Hov’s music is a real representation of him.”
