Rap Beef on Twitter: A Brief History

Categories: Beefs, Twitter

Perez Hilton, meanwhile, has argued with 50 Cent, N.O.R.E. and Azealia Banks. And, speaking of Banks, she's gotten into tiffs with Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, and Angel Haze.

Fabolous has escalated shit with Joe Budden, Soulja Boy and Ray J; while watching a Floyd Mayweather documentary, Fab wrote: "Nah but Floyd saying we havin a concert in my living room & the camera cuts to Ray J singing 'One Wish' on the piano had me in tears!!" Allegedly, this led Ray J to physically attack him.

But what discussion of rap beef would be complete without mentioning The Game, who has entered wars of words with Shyne, pundit Michelle Malkin, and Kat Stacks. Most hilariously, he also squashed the hilarious Tyler, the Creator/Frank Ocean and Chris Brown beef.

We've also seen Bow Wow publicly argue with his mother over her use of Twitter, Slim Thug claim Oklahoma Thunder guard James Harden fraudulently threw up gang signs and Osama Bin Laden's supposed ex-mistress Kola Boof call Wale a "racist." And don't forget the time Blu got heated after comically mishearing a Schoolboy Q lyric he could have easily googled.

But the all-time champion of Twitter beef is Lil B, who recently got into it with Joey Bada$$. That one kicked off when, inexplicably, the latter rapper tweeted a year-old diss lyric from recently-deceased rapper Capital Steez -- "Tell the Based God, don't quit his day job" -- at Lil B, spawning a pair of diss tracks (yes!) and causing Lil B's army of supporters (known as his "task force") to seemingly driving Bada$$ off Twitter temporarily.

If you're keeping score, Lil B has also emerged victorious in Twitter feuds with Joe Budden and basketball player Kevin Durant. The lesson here? If it's late at night and you see the Based God coming down a dark timeline, duck out of sight.
