The Biggest Rap Beefs of All Time

When beef was actual beef.

Beef is one of the most popular things among rappers. But sadly, it’s not the same today. Back in the day, rappers didn’t hide behind keyboards with sneak disses and subliminal messages. Nah. They would beef with each other and take it to the booth.

They’d get on tracks and unleash disses and clapbacks at their opponent. And when they’d see each other in the streets or backstage at awards shows, they’d either have a showdown or settle it like men. Nowadays, rappers fight with tweets and Instagram memes. Those of you who weren’t old enough to witness epic beefs like Tupac and Biggie or Jay-Z and Nas, we’ve got you covered.
