Probably Never-Ending Rap Beef

Pusha-T and Drake

The rap beef between Drake and Pusha-T goes back to the Clipse and Lil Wayne. In 2011, Pusha dropped the song “Don’t F*** With Me,” which sampled Drake’s “Dreams Money Can Buy” and in 2012 he released “Exodus 23:1”

Pusha-T fired shots at Lil Wayne on “Your Favorite Rapper” and Drake responded with “Tuscan Leather” on his 2013 album, Nothing Was the Same. In 2016, Drake aimed at Pusha’s drug-dealing past. In 2018, Push called out Drake for using ghostwriters. Drake then dropped “Duppy Freestyle” in retaliation.

YG and 6ix9ine

Tekashi and Slim 400 got into a heated argument at ComplexCon in November 2018. YG and 6ix9ine haven’t made amends and it doesn’t look like they will do it anytime soon, if at all, according to Tekashi.

Young Thug and YFN Lucci

Young Thug and YFN Lucci’s rap beef dates back to 2017, when Lucci tweeted, “Pac would’ve never worn a dress” in response to Thugger calling himself the new Tupac and Thug wearing a dress on the cover of his 2016 mixtape. Lucci later dropped a single called “Like Pac.” In March of 2019, Young Thug responded to fans questioning the status of his beef with Lucci.

Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly

Machine Gun Kelly and Eminem have a long-standing feud. It all started in 2012 when MGK referred to Em’s daughter, Hailie, as “hot as hell” in a Twitter post. In October of 2015, MGK accused Em of having him blackballed from the Shade45 satellite radio station. Em released his surprise LP Kamikaze months later in August and delivered a direct diss at MGK on the song “Not Alike”. In September of 2018, Em dropped “Kill Shot.”

50 Cent and Ja Rule

Ja Rule was robbed for his chain at gunpoint in 1999. 50 Cent was stabbed by a Murder Inc. crew member at The Hit Factory recording studio in New York City in 2000. Fif released the diss track “Life’s on the Line” aimed at Ja Rule and Murder Inc, the label he was signed to. The two rappers were booked at the same nightclub where their appearance resulted in a physical altercation.

Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim have been feuding since 2008. Their beef goes back to the cover of Nicki’s 2008 mixtape, “Sucka Free”. Kim’s album cover resembles the one from 1996, on which she famously squats. Nicki and Kim met at a Lil Wayne concert.

French Montana and Young Thug

Last year, French Montana and Young Thug engaged in a social media war. Thug called French Montana a “stupid ass nigga” and accused him of not having enough money to compete with Kendrick Lamar and 21 Savage.
