If there is anyone who is well versed in the art of beef in the Hip Hop world, Compton’s The Game has had his fare share. Much like his friend turned foe 50 Cent, The Game has never been shy about engaging in any war of words. Last weekend, the G-Unit head honcho and Meek Mill had a back and forth on Instagram that had everyone talking. Things eventually settled down with the Philadelphia rapper challenging 50 Cent to match his $50K water donation to Flint, MI.
Recently, The Game chimed in on the rift between 50 and Meek with an Instagram post of his own, sharing that he is displeased with how rap beefs have become Internet fodder as opposed to birthing classic beef records. Posting a photo with a quote that is a play on Notorious B.I.G.’s famous line in “What’s Beef?” he shared:
So, this is what it’s come to these days??? Outside of 2pac & B.I.G. dying because their beef got out of control due to the media blowing it out of proportion & us as people adding fuel to the fire with the whole East Coast/West Coast bullshit…
Hip hop beefs were healthy & consisted of rap battles between dope M.C.’s like the legendary KRS-One & Busy Bee beef, the Nas & Jay-Z beef, the Ice Cube & N.W.A. Beef, Bone Thugs & The Dogg Pound beef & the list goes on
So, this is what it's come to these days ??? Outside of 2pac & B.I.G. dying because their beef got out of control due to the media blowing it out of proportion & us as people adding fuel to the fire with the whole East Coast/West Coast bullshit…. Hip hop beefs were healthy & consisted of rap battles between dope M.C.'s like the legendary KRS-One & Busy Bee beef, the Nas & Jay-Z beef, The Real Roxanne & Roxanne Shante beef, the Ice Cube & N.W.A. Beef, Bone Thugs & The Dogg Pound beef, G-Unit & Murder Inc, shit even me & 50's beef & the list goes on…. Back when your whole neighborhood & city got behind you & supported you….. But now, so much of this bullshit going around, it's even hard for me not to get sucked into this social media way of beefing…. & even though some of these memes be funny as fuck….. Why do they determine who won a rap beef ??? WTF happened to REAL hip hop & the classic way of handling rap feuds ??? Never thought I'd see the day when rap beefs were won over iPhone apps & shit. We went from learning from & respecting the O.G.'s to learning from & depending on I.G.'s lol…. Rap all fucked up & niggas is gettin more weird in this shit as the followers pile up….. But hey, since we fightin wit emoji's these days… Thought I'd end my rant with mine ? <—— now go flood baller alert or shade room wit it when they post this cause that's what it boils down to these days ? #KeyboardKillas —> ? #Ethyr #TheBridgeIsOver #TakeOver #Wanksta #NoVaseline #HitEmUp #300Bars to name a few…. #WillTheRealMCsPleaseStandUp
