The details are a little sketchy, but it seems like Vic Mensa took a shot at the late XXXTentacion during the recording of this year's BET Award with XXX's mom Cleopatra Bernard in attendance.
The show was being recorded in Miami this weekend. According to DJ Scheme, Mensa hit at XXX during a freestyle.

When y’all hear Vic Mensas fucking freestyle at the BET awards y’all are going to be fucking disgusted. @VicMensa SUCK MY DICK— BAD VIBES (@DJSCHEME_) October 7, 2018
How could you speak on someone who’s passed especially with his mother and family present in the audience.— BAD VIBES (@DJSCHEME_) October 7, 2018
I got so angry I came back on Twitter. Back to working on this release— BAD VIBES (@DJSCHEME_) October 7, 2018
If Mensa did what Scheme is accusing him of doing -- and this hasn't been verified by anyone else yet -- would it be more out of line than the normal disrespect that's doled out in the rap game?
As for the BET Awards, XXX won Best New Hip Hop artist, which his mom accepted. The show will air October 16.
