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.

“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.”
