Some of hip-hop most significant events in 2024: Rap Battles

A series of beefs marked the beginning of some of hip-hop most significant events in 2024. Megan Thee Stallion, who released “Hiss” on January 26th, seems to have started this. The song, which is currently certified gold by the RIAA, is said to have mocked Nicki Minaj, particularly for its “Megan’s Law” chorus, which made fun of Minaj’s husband for being a registered sex offender. On January 29, Minaj responded with a social media storm and her response song, “Big Foot.”

It appears that other rappers are now free to voice their complaints via music and social media. Let’s review the rap feuds that have kept our playlists and timelines spicy as fresh conflict continues to simmer.

Some of hip-hop most significant events in 2024: Rap Battles

Nicki Minaj vs Megan Thee Stallion

Since the release of their collaborative hit, “Hot Girl Summer,” in 2019, it appears that a dispute has been building. Megan Thee Stallion was accused by Nicki Minaj of attempting to force her to drink alcohol when she was attempting to conceive. It seemed like they were trading subliminals until they laid it all on the ground.

Ice Spice vs Latto

Most of 2023 was devoted to these two exchanging subliminal messages. When Latto was spotted performing a sneak peek of her song “Sunday Service” on social media with an Ice Spice video playing in the background, things seemed to be changing. Ice Spice accepted Latto’s claim that it was an inadvertent slur and released “Think U The Sh**.”

Drake vs Rick Ross

Considering how long Drake and Rick Ross had been together, this was one of the worst feuds ever. Following Kendrick Lamar’s mockery of Drake on “Like That,” Ross made fun of Drizzy on social media, claimed he had sent French Montana a cease-and-desist letter, and even called him out straight on “Champagne Moments.”

Drake vs Future

Since the two were formerly close friends, there has been conjecture on the origins of their beef. Even Future’s 2022 album “I Never Liked You” had a Drake song. Together, they were even honored with a Grammy Award for the album’s lead hit, “Wait For U,” which also included Tems. Unfortunately, Future’s decision to let Kendrick Lamar criticize Drake on “Like That” was a blatant admission that he was losing his cool with Aubrey.

Drake vs Kendrick Lamar

Since Kendrick Lamar released his “Control” verse in 2013, criticizing Drake, Big Sean, Wale, and other prominent hip-hop figures, the two have not exactly been on good terms. Even though it doesn’t seem like they were close, Lamar’s decision to respond to J. Cole’s “Big 3” remark was the catalyst for their feud to surface. Now that they’ve started corresponding, Drake and Lamar have been swapping quick diss tunes for weeks.

Future vs Gunna

This feud appeared out of nowhere. However, Future seemed to mock Gunna’s plans, as he was scheduled to release his album on May 10. He mocked someone’s next project, which many thought to be Gunna’s, to which the latter responded with a subtweet.

JT vs Sukihana

When Sukihana requested JT to clarify a phrase in her song “Okay” that mentioned someone having “cheap a** veneers,” their fight began. Taking this as a jab at her, Suki said that she had eaten crab legs and had lost one of her veneers in public. Internet feuding broke out after JT declined to talk to Suki.

JT vs Yung Miami

The dispute between JT and Yung Miami was one of the saddest to ever make headlines. The two vented their problems on the internet after fending off reports for months that they were no longer pals. While Miami felt the same way, JT thought Miami had never spoken up for her when she was being dragged on social media. Although their relationship seems to have settled down, there are obviously still unresolved concerns between them.

JT vs GloRilla

Since the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards, these two have been at odds over reports that GloRilla smacked JT. While Glo said that she did, in fact, strike JT with her handbag, the Florida rapper denied it ever happened. JT seems to assume that the lyric “Slappin’ rap b**es and makin’ bail, h” was referring to the alleged assault when Glo released “Yeah Glo” in February. It was up to Glo to explain the significance of the bars when he failed to do so.

J. Cole vs Kendrick Lamar

Furthermore, it’s unclear what went wrong for Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. Cole, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar made up his “Big 3,” but Cole has remained certain that Lamar is one of the greatest of all time. Cole released a retaliation song, “7 Minute Drill,” following the California rapper’s break from the “Big 3” on “Like That,” but he promptly removed it and issued an apology.
