On the heels of several recent tales of the beef-gone-bad, another Hip-Hop secret war has bubbled to the surface with Lil’ Scrappy and Don-P of Trillville, who are both signed to Lil’ Jon’s BME label.
Last year, the two men shared success as their joint effort, King of Crunk and BME Recordings Present: Lil’ Scrappy and Trillville, proved that they had star quality that made them attractive to the masses. However, Lil’ Scrappy reportedly released a mixtape called Full Metal Jacket where he took sharp jabs at Trillville, in particular Don P. These charges included charges of homosexuality to pedophilia.
Refuting the allegations, Don P told AllHipHop.com, “At first I wasn’t gonna do it. Scrappy came out with a mixtape, and everybody was telling me about it. I just looked up one day and this n***a got a mixtape talking about all kinds of crazy s**t. Talking about I got extensions in my hair, just a bunch of lies and s**t, bunch of fantasy s**t. So I say, well if he wanna come at me on some fantasy s**t, then I’ma show the world some real s**t.”
Now, Don P has retaliated with own mixtape, Target Practice, which is in collaboration with DJ Scream and Hoodrich Entertainment. Don P said that a piece in XXL magazine was particularly irritating to him and his crew, because Scrappy seemingly disassociated himself with Trillville even though they had a huge hit together with, “Neva Eva.” And upon asking about tension, Don P said his counterpart denied that he was disrespecting them.
Nevertheless, Don P claimed that he’s made failed efforts to quell the beef, including talking to people close to Scrappy.
“We done had a meeting about the s**t, just us and the family. He still keep putting it out in the media. So I say, if you wanna be Flip, then I’ll be T.I. If you wanna be muthaf***n’ Ja Rule, then I’ll be Fifty and I’m just gonna crush yo s**t, n***a,” he said. “Because he’s trying to destroy my reputation, which is impossible in “the A.” But then when s**t start leaking out to people that might not know my history, who might just know me from this music s**t, then I gotta step up and crush his career.”
Don P said the time for peace has expired even though other rappers like Gucci Mane have found themselves in precarious situations.
“[Scrappy] can try to come back, but it’s over. Don’t nobody wanna hear [him, because] he talked so much,” the Trillville member said. “This the first time people actually hearing me speak out. We tired of hearing him talking s**t, we tired of him getting beat up, everybody’s sick of him. Especially in Atlanta.”
Previously, Lil’ Scrappy declined to comment on this matter and was unavailable at presstime.
