5 Great Short Rap Beefs In Hip-Hop
The Lil Durk vs Game/Tyga beef has literally come and gone. This past weekend Durk and Game met in L.A. during BET Award weekend and it appears the beef is officially done. It lasted about two months. Recently rap beefs have begun to sprout up however most of them are quickly dissolved. Here are 5 of the shortest rap beefs in recent times.
50 Cent vs T.I.
50 Cent and T.I. almost got into a huge beef because of Twitter miscommunication. When 50 dropped his two cents on what Tiny should have done in Tip’s court case, the ATL native responded by saying “I’ma tell you, 50 Cent and anybody else, we not gonn’a have no discussion about what my ole lady should’a, would’a, couda done for anything as it pertains to me.” Never the one to hold his tongue, the Queens native took to Twitter to voice his opinions again and said, “don’t get emotional over your lady. It a get you in some shit you don’t want to be in.”
A mutual friend got 50 and Tip on the phone together soon after and they squashed the beef.
Canibus vs Joe Budden & Royce Da 5’9″
After Joe Budden light jab on Twitter (he tweeted “I promise y’all that if I got high, I would smoke Canibus”), Canibus fired back at Joey on “Lyrical Law vs. Joey Cupcakes,” mentioning Royce Da 5’9” and hinting a possible feud between Slaughterhouse and HRSMN a.k.a. The Four Horsemen. Instead Ras Kass detaching himself from the issue and shortly announcing his departure from the supergroup. Shortly after Canibus will go on record and dead the beef.
J. Cole vs. Canibus
J. Cole has consistently mentioned Canibus as a major influence, but the Ripper felt disrespected because Cole only shows love to his older materials. He also felt that Cole spoke about him as if he’s “dead” and the young MC’s form of respect is “underhanded and disingenuous.”
So Canibus made a diss track called “J. Clone.” But instead of barraging the young MC, he mentions, “It’s more than that, we could’ve recorded the track/ You could give me a stack for a verse just like that.” To make matters even worse, Bis then releases one of the most disturbing Youtube clips by a rapper ever, in which he apologizes to J. Cole. He starts the fight, and ends the fight, without J. Cole ever actually getting involved.
Joey Bada$$ vs. Lil B
The Basedgod Lil B and Pro Era head honch Joey Bada$$ got into a war of words on Twitter. Lil B felt some type of way about the late-Capital STEEZ’s jab in “Survival Tactics” (“They say hard work pays off/Well tell the Based God don’t quit his day job”) tweeted to him by Joey Bada$$. The two began to go at it on Twitter for the whole world to see. They eventually drop diss records against each other (Lil B’s “I’m The Bada$$” and Joey Bada$$ “Don’t Quit Your Day Job.” with in a week or two the beef was over and done with.
Lupe Fiasco vs Chief Keef
Lupe commented in a interview with 92 Q Jams that he’s scared of the culture that young rappers like Chief Keef promote in Chicago. Keef got wind of the comments and threaten to smack Lupe when he sees him. The two began to tweet each other (mostly Lupe tweeting Keef that he can’t stand for violence and Sosa’s message). Later Keef would end up saying that his Twitter page was hacked and Lupe told fans that he’s ready to call it quits on his rap career. The End
