People forget (well, some people forget—not us!) that Biggie and 2Pac were relatively good friends once upon a time. But after 'Pac got shot and B.I.G. started to blow up, their friendship fizzled and the whole East versus West thing kept them on opposite sides of the fence.
Curren$y and Lil Wayne
Okay, so at the time, this breakup didn't really seem like a big deal. Curren$y was a little-known Southern rapper back when he split from Wayne's camp a couple of years ago. But now that he's transformed into a respected MC (not to mention, better than just about anyone on Cash Money's roster) it's hard for us to believe that these two couldn't patch up their differences sometime in the future and get back to business.
Royce Da 5'9" and Eminem
Em and Royce have reunited in recent years with Slim Shady going as far as signing Royce's supergroup Slaughterhouse to Shady Records. But back in the late 1990s, these two were Bad Meets Evil, a duo that was supposed to record an album together. It never came together, though, and they went their separate ways shortly after Em became a superstar.
Cam'Ron and Jim Jones
You know the deal between these two already. They've gotten their act together and reunited for the sake of recording another Diplomats album, but there was bad blood that spread between them for several years before they finally worked out their differences.
Jim Jones is no stranger to beef. Aside from his troubles with Killa Cam, Jim's also exchanged words with Mase on several occasions. Although they've known each other for years now and worked together in the past, doesn't it feel like they have a falling out every few years?
In 2005, Game was the prized centerpiece of 50 Cent's G-Unit record label. That didn't last very long, though. Game bit the hand that helped feed him (multiple times) before Fif finally kicked him out of the group. There's been rumblings about a reunion for several years now...but most of that is just Game looking to stir something up.
Game wasn't the only G-Unit member to step out of line in 50 Cent's eyes. Shortly after Fif and Game parted ways, he got word that one of his other soldiers Young Buck was maintaining contact with Game. That led to a public rift, a strange phone call where tears were exchanged and a fractured relationship.
Cuban Link used to run with Fat Joe and the Terror Squad. Needless to say, he doesn't anymore. That's because him and Joe have exchanged blows in a club and CL was even reportedly cut with a knife by someone in Joe's posse. Safe to say, this bridge has been burned. What would Pun say?!
Eazy-E and Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre contends that he maintained contact with Eazy up until the day that he died, but in the final years of Eazy's life, he went through a rough patch with his former friend. Dre and Eazy exchanged diss records shortly after their final album together with N.W.A. and, from the outside looking in, things were never the same between the two.
After recording a couple of classic albums together as EPMD, Erick Sermon and PMD cut ties and went solo. They reunited briefly at the end of the 1990s and split up in 1999 but they've apparently gotten together in recent years to start a new record label. Talk about a bad breakup!
Guru's death really brought this bromance breakup to light. We're still not 100 percent sure about all of the details surrounding their split—though, we're pretty sure Solar had a large impact on it—but one thing was for sure: Guru and Premier weren't as tight in Guru's final days as they were early on in each of their careers.
Do we even need to explain this one? Diddy and Shyne were spotted everywhere together in 1999. Diddy even let Shyne kick it with him and J-Lo. But once the Club New York shooting happened, they cut ties. So much so, that's it hard to even find a photo of them standing together.
Wyclef and Lauryn Hill caused The Fugees to split up. But that didn't mean 'Clef and Pras couldn't stay cool, did it? Um, yes it did, apparently. Especially when you consider that Wyclef is running for President in Haiti...and Pras wasted no time endorsing another candidate. Ouch!
These two tried to be friends twice. The first time, Chingy got a little too big for his britches (pause) and thought Luda's Disturbing Tha Peace record label needed him more than he needed them. The second time these two linked up was just as bad with Luda eventually saying he'd lost all respect for Chingy. Consider this relationship over.
