If there is any rapper who knows more about beef than 50 Cent and Meek Mill, it’s The Game.
Ever since the respective G-Unit and Maybach Music denizens caught everyone’s attention over the weekend due to their Instagram volleys, it was a given every member of the Hip Hop community had an opinion over the ordeal but only a rapper of Jayceon Taylor’s ilk had the audacity to speak on it.
The scribe behind The Documentary used his classic debut’s anniversary to do some Instagram flexin’ of his own by criticizing what “beef” in Hip Hop has succumbed to.
“So, this is what it’s come to these days???,” Game questioned on a photo featuring a play on The Notorious B.I.G.’s unforgettable “What’s Beef?” lyrics. “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 bullshit…”
Game also used his social media platform to school onlookers on some of the more historic feuds of the culture writing, “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 Ice Cube & N.W.A. Beef, Bone Thugs & The Dogg Pound beef & the list goes on.”
Earlier today (January 18), Meek Mill hit the pause button on the incessant disses towards 50 Cent to raise awareness on Flint, Michigan’s dire water situation but it hasn’t deterred the G-Unit ambassador from keeping the flames fanned.
