The Game Comments On Current "Social Media" Rap Feuds Versus Classic Lyrical Rap Battles

(AllHipHop News) Los Angeles emcee The Game has had his fair share of conflicts with other rappers during his career. Perhaps his most famous beef was the verbal sparring with his former musical partner 50 Cent.

As 50 has turned to using his social media platforms as a weapon in his most recent feuds – including his back-and-forth with Meek Mill, Game decided to offer his thoughts on the current state of high-profile battles in today’s Hip Hop culture.

So, this is what it’s come to these days ??? Outside of 2pac & B.I.G. dying because their beef got out of control due to the media blowing it out of proportion & us as people adding fuel to the fire with the whole East Coast/West Coast bullsh*t…. Hip hop beefs were healthy & consisted of rap battles between dope M.C.’s like the legendary KRS-One & Busy Bee beef, the Nas & Jay-Z beef, The Real Roxanne & Roxanne Shante beef, the Ice Cube & N.W.A. Beef, Bone Thugs & The Dogg Pound beef, G-Unit & Murder Inc, sh*t even me & 50’s beef & the list goes on…. Back when your whole neighborhood & city got behind you & supported you….. But now, so much of this bullsh*t going around, it’s even hard for me not to get sucked into this social media way of beefing…. & even though some of these memes be funny as f*ck….. Why do they determine who won a rap beef ??? WTF happened to REAL hip hop & the classic way of handling rap feuds ??? Never thought I’d see the day when rap beefs were won over iPhone apps & sh*t. We went from learning from & respecting the O.G.’s to learning from & depending on I.G.’s lol…. Rap all f*cked up & n*ggas is gettin more weird in this sh*t as the followers pile up….. But hey, since we fightin wit emoji’s these days… Thought I’d end my rant with mine ? <—— now go flood baller alert or shade room wit it when they post this cause that’s what it boils down to these days ? #KeyboardKillas —> ? #Ethyr#TheBridgeIsOver #TakeOver #Wanksta#NoVaseline #HitEmUp #300Bars to name a few….
