Vic Mensa weighed in on Ja Morant’s recent NBA suspension. Morant is now on his second suspension. Both suspensions were for waving a weapon on social media.
“I think God blessed Ja Morant, man,” Mensa told TMZ Sports. “I pray that that brother gets it together and he figures it out because he’s too brilliant and so talented. He’s got a gift, he’s got a real gift.”
He continued, “So, I don’t want to see him have to go down that path because he’s so good. I think God blessed him. I’m not gonna say anything to disparage him. There’s enough people doing that.”
The first time around, Morant claimed the weapon was not his and apologized for being reckless. He recent apologized again for his actions.
“I know I’ve disappointed a lot of people who have supported me,” Morant said in the statement. “This is a journey and I recognize there is more work to do. My words may not mean much right now, but I take full accountability for my actions. I’m committed to continuing to work on myself.”
