The Game is not liking the direction Hip Hop is going with the advent of social media. Days ago, Meek Mill went at 50 Cent in song “Gave Em Hope.” 50 Cent didn’t respond with a diss track. He responded with memes.
Game says in this generation rap beef is now won on memes rather than bars. The West Coast rapper has even admitted to falling victim to it after he was involved in an IG beef with Stitches.
Game expressed his thoughts on the matter via IG:
“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 #300Barsto name a few”
