These days, celebrity beef is the only thing that is omnipresent in the hip hop world. Witnessing these rap rivalries play out—on World Star or social media—can be entertaining and hilarious to watch, but it can also demeaning and detrimental to the culture as a whole.
T.I and Mayweather have recently butt heads (and reportedly fists) in a dispute surrounding the rappers’ wifey Tiny. Nonetheless, the two celebs have mellowed the beef without another fight scene or a public statement. I guess this is a good thing for the sake of hip hop’s dignity, but celebrity beef is just so exciting to watch. Here’s a list of some celebrity beef’s that we wish never ended.
