Rap Beef

#5 Rap Beef (Kanye v. 50 Cent)

8. Kanye v. 50 Cent

How bout none of the above?

This one was actually legit in that they were both pretty big in the game when it went down. But what makes this so ridiculous is how little it actually ended up mattering. They both fell off hard after this.

Back on September 11, 2007, Kanye and 50 both had albums set to release. This epic “coincidence” pitted the rappers against eachother in a battle of week 1 sales.  Kanye and 50 both pledged that the loser would retire from the rap game. Looking back, that does not seem like such a bad thing.

Ultimately, Kanye was the winner in this showdown. Kanye’s album, Graduation, was the last decent thing he’d ever put out. From then on he went Autotune crazy and had a large part in fucking up music as we know it. The most notable thing he has done since this battle ensued was to play the shit out of himself at the MTV Video Music Awards. 

50 Cent, the loser in the battle, has fallen off even harder as a rapper. His last three albums have been flops, and he is more about acting now than anything. He was last seen impersonating the Olsen Twins on his twitter page.

They really should have retired.

#7. GranDad v. Thugnificent and the Lethal Interjection Crew

For those who are not familiar with the first two seasons of the Boondocks, well, what the hell are you doing with yourselves? You missed out! 

This beef started when Thugnificent and his lethal interjection crew moved out of their hood in Terra Belle, GA, and moved into Grandad’s upscale suburb of Woodcrest. After dealing with his fair share of loud parties and other disturbances, Grandad filed a formal complaint with the Woodcrest community board against Thugnificent. Thugnificent and his crew responded by putting out a diss record entitled “F Grandad” (seen in the attached video).

The song is fucking great. Aside from Thugnificent (voiced by Carl Jones), there are also lines by Lethal Interjection members Macktastic (Snoop Dogg) and Flonominal (Bustah Rhymes). The hook is even done by Nate Dogg

You just mad ‘cos yo’ ass is old (Macktastic: Old motherfucker!)/ First thing you do is just pick up the phone (Thugnificent: Eat a dick, nigga!)/ Lethal Interjection livin’ next to your home / You motherfucking Grandpa / Old nigga it’s on! (Thugnificent: Old motherfucker!)

Grandad made a response video on youtube that sucked pretty bad, but it was still hilarious. Soon after Thugnificent and Grandad decided to squash the beef because the “F Grandad” song was leading to old men all over the country getting their ass beat for no reason. The two held a press conference and hugged, while whispering the following exchange to eachother:

Grandad: You still gonna pay for my lawn.
Thugnificent: Eat a dick, old nigga.
