All because of one line...

I would say it's a sad day in Hip Hop but really, I couldn't help but laugh all day. It's a very funny and quite ridiculous day in Hip Hop.

Rap is a very serious thing. It's nothing to f*ck with! But sometimes, the people making rap music take themselves too serious. Like Kid Cudi and Wale. As you see in this photo to the right, you see the two emcees performing along side each other, good vibes right? Apparently not. At least not anymore. I came across this post on XXLmag.com today and after reading it, was left in shock and laughter. Read their post, then continue with this one.

How ridiculous is this beef? Over a one line Cudi? Getting mad over a line, what are you a crackhead? Well...-Anyways, I don't even think the line was even that hot. If you're gonna get mad over something another rapper said about you, at least let it be something dope.You know how many times rappers referenced Chris Brown beating up Rihanna? Too many! But you don't Chris beating those rappers up or crying over it. The back and forth action going on between them seems real stupid. Name calling and subliminal tweets, welcome back to high school anyone? But what I found funny and shocking was this quote from Cudi,
Then 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.
I was like, "Well damn!". I actually remember watching this interview or something where Wale was talking about KanYe not giving him this beat that he heard backstage at some big Jay-Z show. Something to that effect. So now hearing Cudi say this is like giving us the real reason why Wale ain't getting KanYe West beats. As pathetic as I find Cudi to be in all this mess, I appreciate his honesty. He was blunt and straight up about how he felt about Wale and what he said. Unlike Wale, who decided to "take the higher road' after he made another smart ass remake about Cudi in a tweet talking about "liquid cocaine". These guys sound like two 3 year olds I work with. If this was at a daycare with two 3 year old boys, this is how it would go:

Scotty: *runs to teacher* Ms. Esther, Wale is making fun of me!!!
Wale: *screams* LEAVE ME ALONE!
Scotty: *screams back* I'M NOT YOUR FRIEND!
Wale: *calmly approaches teacher* Ms. Esther, Scotty is being bad. I just want to be a good boy.
Scotty: WE AIN'T F*CKING WITH YOUR RAPS!

I promise you, that's the best way you could sum up this "beef". I don't even know if we can call this a beef cause watch these dudes exchange apologies and be broski's again next week. Oh Hip Hop!

In memory of this (currently) fallen friendship, I would like to post one of my favorite songs that I ever heard Kid Cudi or Wale on, Look Up In The Stars. "Those were the daysss!!!" -maybe it's the hook I really like, who knows?!
