Welcome to The Beef Report, your one stop source for all the breaking news on rapper beefs, and the general idiocy that comes with them. Let’s examine some of the most recent beefs developing:
WALE vs. KID CUDI
Challenger: KID CUDI
“ …a simple-ass rhyme by a simple-ass rapper. You can’t let that shit faze you. That’s one of those raps that just shows the world that you wack….people like Wale get mad that ‘Ye ain’t give him no beats—’Ye ain’t give you no beats because we ain’t fucking with your raps. It’s not a conspiracy theory. We don’t fuck with you musically, so we’re not going to provide music for you.”
In his recent cover interview with Complex Magazine, Cudi took the chance to diss Wale for having thrown jabs his way in relation to Cudi having punched a fan earlier this year. The two had previously beefed way back when they were just young eager Freshmen with dreams of success. But that was squashed in the way beefs should be ended by talking out your troubles and moving on. Cudder even included his Wale feature as a bonus track on his successful debut album. I guess that little peaceful period is over. While I can understand that Cudi feels provoked based on the remarks Wale made, he comes off sounding like a major bitch in the interview acting as if he’s an integral part of the Kanye hit machine, and has a say in who they work with. I’m gonna have to side with Wale on this one, in part because I think it was a cheap shot on Cudi’s part. Also, I saw Wale perform a few weeks back, and he was awesome. Hopefully Asher Roth will come forward and serve as the Jesse Jackson mediator for this, so we can put an end to this Freshman infighting.
CAM’RON & JIM JONES vs. KANYE WEST
“Kanye you a sucka nigga/Dissed Dame, so my attitude is fuck the nigga/Stuck to Jigga. How you gon’ live with that? Took the beat, now come get it back.” – Cam’Ron; “Runaway” freestyle
Reunited butt-buddies Killa and Capo hop onto Yeezy’s new jam to toss a few insults at their former Rockafella co-hort. All I have to say to Cam’Ron for this one is: really?? REALLY Cam’Ron?? You’re going to insult the man who helped produce a number of songs for you, including one of your bigger hits off Purple Haze? The guy who gave you a guest spot on one of the tracks from his standout multi-platinum album, even though by that time you had already split with the Roc and had chosen an opposing side of the divorce, that’s your next target? For God’s sake, Kanye even gave you a shout out on “Touch The Sky” for being influential with your unique style; back when you were hip-hop’s Lady Gaga, who left us all wondering what was going on in that pink-hatted head of yours. Look, I get it: You and your bff Dame Dash are still irked at mean ol’ Mr. Carter for pushing you out of the way on his rise to the top. But that doesn’t mean you have to go after someone who never did anything but help you and your touch-and-go career. This is Kanye’s big-triumphant comeback year, and you just look like a bitter old man who’s trying to get some attention by pulling at coattails. My advice? Stop grasping at straws, get your bum ass back to recording that new Diplomats album we’re all salivating for, and apologize profusely to Kanye, so that maybe he’ll be generous enough to give you some old throw-away 808’s & Heartbreak beat for you to use. *shake my head* what ever happened to loyalty… you’re better than this, Cam.
