In a recent interview with Complex, 23 year old California rapper, Vince Staples indirectly said the Nas and Jay Z beef was corny. He also believes the Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj beef was also corny. Hmm! Read his words below before I speak more on this.
"Who won the Remy/Nicki beef?
Sh-t is corny.
The whole sh-t?
That sh-t is f-cking corny.
Isn’t beef a part of hip-hop?
It’s f-cking corny.
Did you think the Cube/N.W.A. beef was corny?
It was f-cking corny.
Jay Z and Nas was corny?
Back to the beginning, KRS versus—
Corny. Well, probably not corny ’cause somebody actually got beat up in those.
Oh. So if somebody gets beat up then it’s not corny?
I’m not gonna go book studio time to talk about you.
This is a part of hip-hop that fans love—it’s traditionally part of hip-hop.
So watch a Smack battle. They’re much better at it. King of the Dot. You have the UW League in New Jersey. So many battle leagues. Go watch some Charlie Clips. I don’t wanna see people demean one another for no reason when they can have a phone conversation. Especially when they’re actually successful musicians. There is battle rap. I am a fan of that, but as far as the spitefulness of it? ‘Cause battle rappers are actually like all friends for the most part, and they write it, have fun, and talk about it on Facebook later. It’s real f-cking cute, but all that other sh-t they can get the f-ck out of here. That sh-t is corny as f-ck. It’s like, “I’m gonna say really hurtful things about you for the sake of hip-hop.” Oh. (Complex)
I guess the dude has the opinion that people must die or get hurt for beef to be real. What a way to look at life. Yea, rap beefs do spill over to the streets some times (Game and 50 Cent), but you can't tell me the rest beefs that didn't spill to the streets or get physical were corny. Rappers have a profession called rapping, and how would it be if they don't make the best of it, and showcase how good they really are (in relation to who they are beefing with) by releasing diss tracks?
