Wayne took things a bit further by releasing their “Don’t Cry” music video.

Last fall, Chicago rapper Vic Mensa explained his decision to diss XXX during a 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards freestyle.

“Recently I did a freestyle for the BET Hip Hop Awards cypher addressing and condemning rappers who unabashedly abuse women and those who stand up for them and even call them legends. I stand behind that statement. It was pre-recorded weeks ago and I had no idea a grieving mother would be in the audience to honor her loss son. I never intended to disrespect her and I often my deepest condolences for her loss at the hands of gun violence. However, I vehemently reject the trend in hip-hop of championing abusers and I will not hold my tongue about it. I don’t give a f*ck about getting attention. I care about bringing awareness and holding people accountable for their actions.”
