You know the feuds, but do you know how they started?

Nowadays, when rappers diss each other, everyone knows why. If anyone¬†didn’t, they could very easily watch this year’s VMA’s or scroll through a Twitter feed to get caught up. Before social media was as prevalent, rappers had to get their disses in where they could: in their music.

Even though a lot of the feuds were well-known at the time, some of the stories have been lost throughout the years. Many people listen to these songs without having any idea that the rappers are throwing shade at each other.

Some of the backstories of these disses are crazy and over the top in ways you totally wouldn’t expect.
