The Game Speaks On Social Media Beefs Between Rappers

Posted By on January 19, 2016

West Coast rapper The Game apparently has had enough of Meek Mill & 50 Cent‘s social media beef, and he decided to speak on the situation via social media. It seems like Game is tired of the amount of high-profile rap beefs in today’s Hip Hop culture and he addressed it by writing the following caption on an Instagram post,

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 bullsh*t…. 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, sh*t 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 bullsh*t 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 f*ck….. 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 & sh*t. We went from learning from & respecting the O.G.’s to learning from & depending on I.G.’s lol…. Rap all f*cked up & n*ggas is gettin more weird in this sh*t 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….”
