Question of the Day: To Beef or Not To BeefSeptember 12th, 2008
Beef is getting played out, NO MORE DRAMA!
It’s come to my attention that in the last 24 months, hip hop has become friendly; weird right? Not that I condone hip hop warfare, but it’s mind boggling how all of a sudden one minute two rivals are penning viscous responses and the next they’re recording songs together. Maybe it’s this recession we’re enduring or the fact that Sarah Palin doesn’t have the slightest clue as to what the Bush Doctrine is (so sad).
Regardless, rappers are making amends, and it’s happening at the speed of light. First, Jay and Nas kicked of the “Hip Homey” brigade by ceasing the peace at Power 105’s, I Declare War Concert. The two lyrical prophets graced the stage; hugging, kissing and rapping each other’s songs to the pleasure of 20,000 screaming hip hop advocates. After that, it was all down hill from there (in regards to hip hop beefs). Now, I’m not going to sit here and address each beef that was resolved in the last year and a half (Jada vs. 50 Cent, T.I. Vs. Shawty Lo, Ludacris vs. T.I. to name a few), but I will list the active beefs that still plague our mixtapes, radio shows and hood dvd’s.
Active “Beef” List
B.I.G vs 2Pac (Forever unresolved)
Jay-Z vs. Dame Dash
Dipset vs. Cam’ron
Ja Rule vs. 50 Cent
Fat Joe vs. 50 Cent
The Game vs. G-Unit
Foxy Brown vs. Lil Ki
Remy Ma vs. Foxy Brown
Neyo vs. R.Kelly
R.Kelly vs. Jay-Z
Jermaine Dupri vs.
Alright, that’s all I could conjure up for the moment; however, your job is JUST getting started. If you had the chance to mend any of these “active” hip hop beef’s, which one would it be and why??? Yes, I know it’s Friday, but Summer hours are over, and I know most of you have about 3 hours left till you start your weekend…so get to work, lol!
