The 10 Craziest Hip-Hop Fights Caught On Camera

Were you surprised when you heard that Game got into a fight with fellow West Coast rapper 40 Glocc last weekend—and filmed it? Unfortunately, we weren't. Over the course of the last few years, we've seen it happen over and over and over again. Rappers haven't just been getting into fights; they've also been filming their fights and posting them online as proof that their battles actually went down. And, if they're not the ones filming them, then you can be damn sure that there's someone else out there with a smart phone recording the action.

It's an epidemic that's taking place in hip-hop right now amongst rappers as well as others in the rap community. To show you what we mean, we hit YouTube and found The 10 Craziest Hip-Hop Fights Caught On Camera. Check out the action. Hey, guys: Can't we all just get along?!


The Fight: Game vs. 40 Glocc
What Happened: These two have been beefing for quite some time now. But, it's never gotten this out of control. Last weekend, Game spotted 40 Glocc, turned on his iPhone camera, and attacked his fellow West Coast MC.
The Winner: Neither. If there's anything we're starting to learn about these hip-hop fights caught on camera, it's that they're a bad look for hip-hop in general. This fight just goes to prove it. Game claims he won the fight. But, with everybody throwing shots his way right now and criticizing him for "jumping" 40 Glocc, did he really win anything? C'mon, fellas.


The Fight: 40 Glocc vs. Black Wall Street artist Menace
What Happened: As we told you earlier, Game and 40 Glocc have been beefing for awhile. So, it should come as no surprise to hear that 40 Glocc once got into a fist-fight with one of Game's Black Wall Street artists.
The Winner: Who knows? A few different clips of the fight leaked out but none of them showed a clear winner. And, of course, both rappers claimed that they'd won the fight. So, we'll just call this one a draw.


The Fight: Charlamagne Tha God vs. Five unknown goons
What Happened: In the short clip, you can hear one of the guys asking Charlamagne for a drop. But, before he can answer, he gets sucker punched in the back of the head and then gets up and runs away.
The Winner: Charlamagne Tha God. He did get punched on camera. But, he probably did the smart thing by avoiding a bigger beatdown. No shame in that.


The Fight: Lil B vs. "journalist" Lil Nico
What Happened: This wasn't so much a fight as it was an all-out assault. Lil B agreed to sit down and do an interview with Nico and, just as it was wrapping up, Nico—who hadn't shown any hostility to Lil B during the actual interview—sucker punched him several times in the face and walked out of the room.
The Winner: Lil B. Even though he took a few punches to the face, the fight actually helped him get his name out there even more. And, Nico came across as a jealous guy who orchestrated a weak physical attack against him. Wack. He later put out an apology video and said that he reacted violently after Lil B told him he couldn't call Soulja Boy to help him get signed.


The Fight: Junior M.A.F.I.A. vs. Dipset
What Happened: We're still not 100 percent sure what started this fight. But, back in the late 1990s, Jim Jones and Cam'Ron got into a confrontation with some of the members of Junior M.A.F.I.A.
The Winner: Junior M.A.F.I.A. Jim Jones took a ton of shots during this clip. But, Cam'Ron took an even bigger L when he got caught running away from the fight while it was still going on and leaving Jim behind.


The Fight: ENJ vs. Nyckz
What Happened: In the middle of a battle, Nyckz rapped, "Oh, you mad 'cause I'm styling' on you?" ENJ responded by sucker punching him in the face.
The Winner: Nyckz. Without that line—and that punch—we probably never would have heard about Nyckz. But, because of it, we heard both his name and his catchphrase for weeks after this video was posted to YouTube.


The Fight: Waka Flocka Flame vs. Some random rapper
What Happened: At a charity bowling event in Atlanta, a man who reportedly used to be one of Waka's artists approached him and words were exchanged. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the man punched Waka right in the face and ignited a huge brawl.
The Winner: No one. Didn't we say this was a charity event? And, it was a charity event sponsored by Waka. So, everyone lost when a fight broke up the party early.


The Fight: Kid Cudi vs. Some drunk guy
What Happened: At a concert in Ohio a couple of years ago, an intoxicated fan ran on stage and attacked Cudi. He responded by chasing the fan off stage and punching him several times.
The Winner: Kid Cudi. He had the right to protect himself—and that's exactly what he did! Even better, he got right back on stage and finished his set once he was done.


The Fight: Kanye West and Don C vs. A cameraman
What Happened: A cameraman attempted to take a picture of 'Ye and his manager at Los Angeles International Airport. They asked him not to take it and, when he took it anyway, they attacked him and broke his camera.
The Winner: Not Kanye. He was arrested shortly on vandalism charges and held on $20,000 bail.


The Fight: will.i.am vs. Perez Hilton
What Happened: After Perez reportedly told Fergie that he didn't like her music or the Black Eyed Peas at a Hollywood party, will.i.am confronted Perez. The blogger claimed that will.i.am then punched him several times and gave him a black eye. It's hard to see in this clip, but you can see all the commotion that the two celebrities caused.
The Winner: Ummm…Let's just say that if we're at the point where will.i.am and Perez Hilton are fighting, there are no winners! We all lose.

Chris Brown Confirms Summer Tour With Nicki Minaj

Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj are hitting the road. The duo will team up for an upcoming U.S. tour set to kick off this summer, Brown confirmed via social media Friday (April 19) after Variety reported that the tour would begin in the fall.

A potential Sept. 13 concert at New Jersey’s Prudential Center was added to the venue's website and later deleted. The site listed Brown as the marquee act, while Minaj was a featured performer.

Besides going on tour together, Minaj makes an appearance on Brown’s newly released single “Wobble Up,” which also features G-Eazy. The track is the latest music collaboration from Brown and Minaj who have worked together a few times over the years.

News of the joint tour comes a day after it was reported that Minaj parted ways with her longtime management team. The “Gonja Burns” rapper was originally billed to hit the road with Future for the North American leg of her Queen tour but the jaunt was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts. The Queens native recently finished up her European tour with Juice WRLD as her special guest.

Last Sunday, Minaj took the stage as a surprise guest for week one of Ariana Grande’s headlining set at the 2019 Coachella Valley Music Festival. It’s unclear if she will hit the stage when Grande returns to perform for week two of Coachella on April 21.

Adele Separates From Husband Simon Konecki

Adele and her husband Simon Konecki have separated after seven years together. A rep for the “Hello” singer confirmed the split in a statement to the Associated Press Friday (April 19).

“Adele and her partner have separated,” the statement reads. “They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

Adele, 30, and Konecki, 45, share a 6-year-old son. The former couple reportedly began dating in 2012 and wed in 2016. Though she tends to keep quiet about her personal life, Adele confirmed her marriage to Konecki during a Grammys acceptance speech in 2017 thanking her husband, manager and son.

Since wrapping up her most recent world tour a few years ago, the British star has been mostly out of the spotlight. In 2017, Adele announced that she may never tour again after being on the road for more than a year.

Last month, she treated a lucky group of fans to an impromptu performance at a New York City gay bar. Days later, paparazzi spotted Adele walking into a New York City recording studio. Rumor has it that her long-awaited fourth studio album will drop sometime this year.

Homecoming: The 5 Best Moments Of Beyoncé’s Documentary

Once Beyoncé became the first African-American woman to headline in its nearly 20-year history, we knew Coachella would never the same. To mark the superstar’s historic moment, the 2018 music and arts festival was appropriately dubbed #Beychella and fans went into a frenzy on social media as her illustrious performance was live-streamed by thousands. (Remember when fans recreated her choreographed number to O.T. Genasis’ “Everybody Mad”?)

With a legion of dancers, singers and musicians adorned with gorgeous costumes showcasing custom-made crests, the singer’s whirlwind performance honored black Greek letter organizations, Egyptian queen Nefertiti, and paid homage to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Aside from the essence of black musical subgenres like Houston’s chopped and screwed and Washington D.C.’s go-go music, the entertainer performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” also known as “The Black National Anthem,” and implemented a dancehall number, sampling the legendary Jamaican DJ and singer, Sister Nancy, to show off the versatility of black culture.

One year after #Beychella’s historic set, the insightful concert film, Homecoming, began streaming on Netflix and unveiled the rigorous months of planning that went into the iconic event. The 2-hour 17-minute documentary highlights Beyoncé’s enviable work ethic and dedication to her craft, proving why this performance will be cemented in popular culture forever. Here are the best moments from Beyoncé’s Homecoming documentary.

The Intentional Blackness

“Instead of me bringing out my flower crown, it was more important that I brought our culture to Coachella.”

Throughout the documentary, Beyoncé made it known that everything and everyone included in the creative process leading up to the annual festival was deliberately chosen. “I personally selected each dancer, every light, the material on the steps, the height of the pyramid, the shape of the pyramid,” says Beyoncé. “Every tiny detail had an intention.” When speaking on black people as a collective the entertainer notes, “The swag is limitless.” Perhaps the most beautiful moments in Homecoming are the shots that focus on the uniqueness of black hair and its versatility. What’s appreciated above all is the singer’s commitment to celebrating the various facets of blackness and detailing why black culture needs to be celebrated on a global scale.

Beyoncé’s Love And Respect For HBCUs

#Beychella — which spanned two consecutive weekends of Coachella’s annual festival — was inspired by elements of HBCU homecomings, so it was no surprise when the singer revealed she always wanted to attend one. “I grew up in Houston, Texas visiting Prairie View. We rehearsed at TSU [Texas State University] for many years in Third Ward, and I always dreamed of going to an HBCU. My college was Destiny's Child. My college was traveling around the world and life was my teacher.” Brief vignettes in the film showcased marching bands, drumlines and the majorettes from notable HBCUs that comprise of the black homecoming experience. In the concert flick, one of the dancers affectionately states, “Homecoming for an HBCU is the Super Bowl. It is the Coachella.” However, beyond the outfits that sport a direct resemblance to Greek organizations, Beyoncé communicated an important message that remains a focal point in the film: “There is something incredibly important about the HBCU experience that must be celebrated and protected.”

The Familiar Faces

Despite being joined by hundreds of dancers, musicians and singers on-stage, the entertainer was joined by some familiar faces to share the monumental moment with her. While making a minor appearance in the documentary, her husband and rapper/mogul Jay-Z came out to perform “Deja Vu” with his wife. Next, fans were blessed by the best trio to ever do it as Kelly and Michelle joined the singer with renditions of their hit singles including “Say My Name,” “Soldier,” and more. On top of this star-studded list, Solange Knowles graced the “Beychella” stage and playfully danced with her older sister to the infectious “Get Me Bodied.”

Her Balance Of Being A Mother And A Star

Originally slated to headline the annual festival in 2017, the singer notes that she “got pregnant unexpectedly...and it ended up being twins.” Suffering from preeclampsia, high blood pressure, toxemia and undergoing an emergency C-section, the entertainer candidly details how difficult it was adjusting post-partum and how she had to reconnect with her body after experiencing a traumatizing delivery. “In the beginning, it was so many muscle spasms. Just, internally, my body was not connected. My body was not there.” Rehearsing for a total of 8 months, the singer sacrificed quality time with her children in order to nail the technical elements that came with the preparation for her Coachella set. “I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol … and I’m hungry.” Somehow, throughout all of this, she still had to be a mom. “My mind wanted to be with my children,” she says. Perhaps one of the most admirable moments in the film was witnessing Beyoncé’s dedication to her family but also to her craft.

The Wise Words From Black Visionaries

Homecoming opens with a quote from the late, Maya Angelou stating, “If you surrender to the air, you can ride it.” The film includes rich and prophetic quotes from the likes of Alice Walker, Nina Simone, Toni Morrison, and notable Black thinkers, reaffirming Beyoncé’s decision to highlight black culture. The quotes speak to her womanhood and the entertainer’s undeniable strength as a black woman.

Blue Ivy’s Cuteness

Last, but certainly not least, Blue Ivy‘s appearance in the concert film is nothing short of precious. One of the special moments in the documentary zeroes in on the 7-year-old singing to a group of people whilst Beyoncé sweetly feeds the lyrics into her ears. After finishing, Blue says: “I wanna do that again” with Beyoncé replying with “You wanna be like mommy, huh?” Seen throughout Homecoming rehearsing and mirroring Beyoncé’s moves, Blue just might follow in her mother’s footsteps as she gets older.
