Vic Mensa and Chance The Rapper have a lot in common. They’re both 23-year-old rising star rappers out of Chicago who have worked with some of the biggest names in Hip Hop, including Kanye West. They’ve known each other since high school, have worked on a few songs together, and are both part of the same Savemoney collective.
But now it seems like there might be differences growing between them, at least according to a poorly edited photo uploaded to Mensa’s Instagram on Thursday (June 9).
Mensa celebrated his “Jordan Year” birthday in New York City earlier this week with his Roc Nation label boss Jay Z and Hov’s wife Beyonce. He uploaded two slightly different images to Twitter and Instagram capturing the moment.
See if you can spot the difference.

If you noticed that a giant black blob is obscuring Chance The Rapper in the second photo, then congratulations, you’ve got eyes.
The edited IG version of the image (captioned “Birthday with friends. Jordan year.”) is deleted now, but it left fans wondering what’s going on between the two rappers.

Neither rapper has publicly addressed the issue yet, though Vic may have dropped a subliminal on his timeline earlier this week.
