Celebrity Interviews

Vic Mensa & Joey Purp Take Turns Rapping in an Epic Freestyle Session

What a day!

Last month Vic Mensa joined us on Sway in the Morning and told us about a fan who mentioned the only person he’d be star-struck meeting was Sway. Coincidentally, Vic was on his way to New York for his interview with Sway!

Fast-forward 30-days, Vic came back to Sway in the Morning and brought the fan, Mitch from Louisville, Kentucky to meet Sway himself! In an inspirational and heart-felt interview, Mitch mentions going through anxiety and depression — and how a DM from Mensa changed his life.

Joey Purp also joined us in-studio and chimed in with his top 5 best MCs list, along with Sway, Vic Mensa, Mitch, Tracy G and DJ Wonder. Purp also opens up about his legal issues and having to stay home, under probation, as his homies travel and tour the world. Quickly changing the vibe, he breaks down some pretty impressive bars from his record, Winner’s Circle.

Ending the show on an incredible note, Vic Mensa and Joey Purp take turns freestyling in an epic cypher session.
