Lyfe Jennings vs. Raheem DaVaughn
These two crooners from the gritty side of the (music) tracks never had a real reason to beef. A while back, Lyfe was told in an interview that the DMV singer-songwriter had issued a R&B "challenge" to him. The Apollo Amateur Hour winner accepted and said that he would "remix one of Raheem's albums" and prove he was the better artist.
Funny enough, Raheem was in town that day and added his two cents, saying, "I'll talk to that black man face-to-face to get it squared away." While these two may have come from rough environments, the beef was getting hyped up on R&B blogs and gossip sites. Thankfully for all those on the streets, it never went far, as the Ohio native (Lyfe) went to prison in fall 2010.
