Vic Mensa thinks he is the perfect candidate to portray the iconic Prince in any potential biopics about the Minnesota musician.
In an interview with Montreality The Autobiography rapper spoke about wanting to play the Purple Rain mastermind, saying: “I think I should play Prince in the biopic. Prince is one of my biggest idols of all time and he’s the real King of Pop. Some people will be mad that I said that. The reason why I’d be able to kill the role as Prince is because I got that mouthpiece. Prince was butter smooth with it and I feel like I could do it.”
Mensa has shown has admiration of Prince before, having dressed up as the guitar virtuoso for Halloween this year.
During the interview Mensa also talked about the feud between Jay-Z and Kanye West.
“Nobody likes it. I don’t think they like it,” Mensa said. “That’s the delicate thing about male ego. All relationships go through that – male, female, ego driven or not. Relationships go through strain and the real relationships live past it, as I believe Kanye and Hov’s relationship one hundred percent has, and will.”
“I’m not speaking from a place of even knowing that much about the situation,” he added. “I think they’re all good though.”
