There have been some big beefs in the hip hop world over the years. Check out the biggest feuds from this year and years past!
Iggy Azalea vs. Snoop Dogg
After Snoop Dogg poked fun of Iggy Azalea in an Instagram post, Iggy reportedly responded in a tweet (which was deleted), calling Snoop “mean.” But the Dogg didn’t stop there. He posted more memes, comparing Iggy to Marlon Wayans’ character in the film White Chicks, even telling Iggy to “cool out” in another post. Iggy addressed the feud on Twitter, writing that she only had a problem with the first meme Snoop posted, which was the image of a man with a caption reading “Iggy Azalea No Make Up.” She also noted that Snoop’s post shocked her because he acts differently when he’s face-to-face with her.
Nicki Minaj vs. Iggy Azalea
After an article surfaced in Forbes claiming that Iggy Azalea’s quick rise in the charts has been putting her on top while Nicki remained “oddly quiet for months,” Queen Barbie spoke up. During an interview with “The Breakfast Club,” Nicki said, “All Forbes needs to worry about is my finances and when I’m going to be selling Myx Fusions for $250 million. That’s all they need to worry about. We rely on hip-hop connoisseurs and blogs for that kind of information. So we appreciate it, but no thank you.”
Katy Perry vs. Chief Keef
The Chicago rapper threatened to “smack” Katy Perry on Twitter after the pop star referenced one of his songs. She tweeted that title “I Hate Being Sober” caused her to “have serious doubt for the world.” Keef responded by saying, “Dat b—- Katy Perry Can Suck Skin Off my D—.” He continued, “I’ll smack The S— out her.” Katy apologized after tweeting, “Mr. Keef! I’m sorry if I offended you. I heard a lot of people guesting on the song & didn’t even know it was you in particular.” She went on, “I’m a fan of your ‘Don’t Like’ video tbh. I was really just having a general opinion on our generations desire to be constantly intoxicated.”
Mariah Carey vs. Nicki Minaj
Diva vs. Diva. The feud began while both judging “American Idol.” The two got into a showdown and even briefly shut down the show’s auditions in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Notorious BIG vs. Tupac Shakur
This is the biggest feud in the hip-hop world to date. A battle of east coast vs. west coast ended ended horribly in 1996 with the murder of Tupac, and Biggie only a year later.
Nicki Minaj vs. Lil Kim
The barbie has consistently taken shots at the veteran rapper several times in her songs, causing Lil Kim to feel disrespected. Many rap titans have encouraged the girls to respect one another so they all can ‘rap together’ peacefully.
Drake vs. Chris Brown
While at W.I.P. nightclub in New York City, the rappers and their crews got into a fight. The brawl got so bad that bottles were allegedly thrown and Chris posted a photo the next day of him sporting a bloody gash on this chin. There was buzz at the time that the two were feuding over Rihanna.
Jimmy Kimmel vs. Kanye West
After Jimmy Kimmel spoofed a BBC Kanye West interview, the rapper took to twitter to deliver an epic rant on the matter. The two eventually made up after Kanye was a guest on Jimmy’s show. Kimmel even said, “We had a big dumb fight on Twitter but he was nice enough to come on tonight.”
Lil Wayne vs. Scooter Braun
Lil Wayne took shots at Scooter Braun in defense of Lil Twist. Weezy heard Scooter was running his mouth about Justin Bieber’s buddy, and recorded a message with a few choice words for Braun. Part of his message included, “Anything you got to say, when you see me, say it to my motherf***in’ face.
